Prince George, B.C. –  They have been preparing for today for some time,  and  this afternoon, 27 Cadets of the  142  Aurora Navy League Cadet Corps in Prince George stood tall to  show what they have learned.

It  was the  33rd Annual Review,   and before family,  friends and  a few dignitaries at the Connaught Youth Centre,  Cadets  displayed their marching  and formation drills,   and were officially ‘inspected’  by  Prince George Mayor Lyn Hall  and   Navy  League  brass.

Although the Cadets were standing “at ease” not all had an easy feeling says  Commanding Officer  Lieutenant (Navy League)  Tom Taylor “A lot of them are very nervous”.

In addition to showing their marching and drill skills,  the  group of 9-12 year olds  took time to show  the skills they have  learned in  first aid.

In advance of today’s ceremony,  numerous awards were  handed out  yesterday to deserving Cadets   in categories that include;  most improved,  leadership,  exemplary effort and attitude,  unsung hero,   and citizenship.



Perhaps the best training for young people out there, good to see.
