Cadets from 603 RCACC Weymouth and 1714 RCACC Annapolis Royal combined for the annual cadet review ceremony held Saturday, June 7, at Sissiboo Landing in Weymouth.

Weymouth’s commanding officer Capt. Eben Sabean said the event was the first joint annual cadet review in Nova Scotia.

“No cadet corps have tried this and the afternoon’s ceremonies were a great success,” said Sabean.

The ceremony began with the two cadet corps falling in followed by the Marching on of Colours.

Reviewing officer Col. J.R. Stonier inspected the corps along with meeting members of the Gaels of Fundy Pipes and Drums Band from Digby.

Presentations and awards were made with Weymouth’s Master Warrant Officer Alexa Shearer receiving the four-year service medal and the Master Cadet certificate.

Cadet Anthony Nickerson received the award for most enthusiastic cadet.

Colour party commander Warrant Officer Theodore Chapelhow of the Annapolis Corps was awarded the trophy for Best All Round Cadet.

MWO Damian Tumilty of Annapolis received the Cadet Leadership award and parade regimental sergeant major Chief Warrant Officer  Nicholas Wallace of 1714 Corps was awarded the Lord Strathcona Medal. This medal is the highest award which can be bestowed on a Royal Canadian Army Cadet in recognition of exemplary performance in physical and military training.

Displays and training demonstrations and a standing reception followed the ceremony.
