The annual First Sea Lord Cadets’ (1SL) Investiture ceremony was recently held on board HMS VICTORY after a 2-year hiatus. The ceremony was hosted by Admiral Sir Ben Key, KCB, CBE, ADC, First Sea Lord Cadets, and included the Combined Cadet Force, the Royal Navy Cadet Forces of the Volunteer Cadet Corps and Sea Cadets.
The appointment offers 1 Star Level Cadets a privileged insight into the higher echelons of the Royal Navy. During their tenure CCF 1SL cadets will meet Navy Board members, Trustees of parent Cadet organisation, organise and build area forums, and provide feedback to their respective Headquarters. They will attend formal parades, ship visits, Royal Occasions, Opening Ceremonies, Presentations and Awards, and Receptions.
