last Monday, Stonehaven and District’s Sea Cadet Unit, Training Ship CARRON welcomed onboard the Grampian District Officer, Lieutenent Commander (SCC) Brian Mair RNR, who conducted the annual Unit Review Visit.
The review visit forms an important part of the Unit’s annual performance assessments and counts substantially towards the 2012 efficiency award that the Unit may receive.
The Ship’s Company spent the previous month busy making sure everything from their uniforms, to their boats, to their Unit HQ and boatsheds were all ship shape and bristol fashion!
At the end of the evening LtCdr Mair presented Petty Officer Cadet Michael Blacklaw with the 2011 Area Officer’s Trophy.
This is awarded to the runner up Unit to the Stephenson Trophy - Best Unit in the Northern Area (Scotland, Northern Ireland & North England). The 2011 Stephenson Trophy winners were Greenock Unit.
