In April 1963, Stonehaven and District Sea Cadet Unit were presented with their Unit Colours by LtCdr and Mrs AG Mitchell in memory of their son, Laurence who tragically lost his life in a road traffic accident.
On Sunday September 11, the Unit will receive new Colours to replace the original set which will be laid up as they have become worn and torn over the years. The unit would love to hear from any of the April 1963 staff and cadets who they would like to invite to the new Colours presentation as guests of the Unit.
Three former cadets, Mel Christie, Robin Barclay and Tommy Ewing have come up with the following names: W Malcolm, I Ritchie, DT Watson, T Ewing, AH Elder, G Elder, DG Carnie, G John, AA Christie, D McRae, AL Sutherland, R Barclay, WP Jeans, TG Middleton, J Donald, BG Michie, A McAndrew, R Whyte, I Watt, C Munro, IG Masson, D Forsyth, T Berry, L Payne, AH Knight, W Allan, RP Leiper, A Jeffrey, A Duncan, D Lawson, L Clark, N Leiper, TA Masson, A Carey, K Stephen, JW Fordyce, S Clark, R Banks, R Ross, M Christie, I Taylor and George Park.
