INDEFATIGABLE CUP WINNERS for 2011

T.S RALEIGH – JARROW (UNIT 197) SEA CADET CORPS – Win the SIXTH Indefatigable Trophy.

Indefatigable Old Boys, were invited to attend the following event and ceremony on ‘Friday 20th July 2012’ at 19:00hrs.

It gives us the greatest pleasure to congratulate T.S Raleigh, on being awarded the Indefatigable Cup. The Unit made sustained progress throughout last year, with an effective training programme and the taking part of District and Area events. This has required huge effort and commitment and they thoroughly deserve the award.

Jarrow Sea Cadet unit was awarded a Burgee by Cpt Mark Windsor RN (SCC Captain), at a special presentation ceremony at the unit premises in Jarrow. The Burgee is the highest award that can be awarded to a Sea Cadet Corps Unit in recognition of the hard work of the Volunteers, Cadets and UMC. Lt Cdr (SCC) A Simpson RNR also attended the evening, where S/Lt (SCC) Tracy Peel RNR accepted the Burgee on behalf of the unit. Jarrow Sea Cadet unit was founded in 1942 and has been part of the Jarrow community ever since. The unit has helped many young people develop and grow through training and opportunities.

Jarrow Sea Cadets was presented with the Indefatigable Cup by Brigadier Bill O’Leary (IOBA Chairman).  The Brigadier, joined by many Parents, Supporters and local Dignitaries, praised the unit for the incredible hard work that had been put in by Cadets, Staff and UMC to save the unit from closure in 2011, and swell cadet numbers to the current levels.

The magnificent trophy was present to the unit Commanding Officer S/Lt (SCC) Tracy Peel RNR, which was supported by a cheque, that will help fund further training for the Cadets. S/Lt (SCC) Peel RNR said how proud the unit was to be receiving this award, which identifies Jarrow unit as the most improved unit in the whole of the UK.

The trophy, once the ‘Merseyside Navy League – Swimming Gala Trophy’, is so valuable it has to remain at the SCC HQ other than for the presentation, the winning unit  receives a Glass Shield to keep. The Cadets performed a short play on the evening showing the gathered audience where the Indefatigable history came from and how it still has a relationship to what the Sea Cadets do today.’

An ‘Parents’ observation:Dear Sir, we would like to thank you very much, for a superb evening on Friday at TS Raleigh, Jarrow sea cadets. Our daughter, Junior Cadet Kate Hockings, was amazed at how the evening went. Afterwards she told us that she was ‘blown away’ by the way yourself, and other VIP’s interacted with the cadets and their families. She is the Cadet who nervously gave a speech, she had wrote herself, during the ceremony! She has since been very proudly showing off her photos, and telling all her friends and family all about her evening! and the wonderful people she was lucky enough to have met.

Thank you so very much for making the evening so memorable, we are so proud of Kate, and proud that she has chosen to belong to such a fabulous group of people at TS Raleigh. It was lovely to meet you, thank you for choosing Jarrow, and coming along to present the stunning trophy.”

An ‘IOBA’ observation:I’m sure some people can’t understand why I become so emotional over the Sea Cadet award, but experiences such as this really bring it home how much good the IOBA is doing in this particular arena, a massive Well Done to all those who went along from the OBA.” Tom Keyes: IOBA Treasurer.

Six ‘Indefatigable Old Boys’  attended the award night;

John Aspinall.59/60

Daryl Wilkes.83/85

Brigadier WJ O’Leary TD ADC. (IOBA Chairman).74/76

Tony Eastham. (IOBA Newsletter Editor).75/76

Steve Humphries. (Secretary & Archives).75/76

It was clear that the whole Unit of ‘TS Raleigh’: Cadets, Staff, Committee and Parents are ‘all’ very proud of what they have achieved, let alone their dedication to the Sea Cadet Corps. Everyone found the whole evening very uplifting, a credit to ‘Sub Lieutenant (SCC) Tracy Peel and her team’. It’s an understatement how Units such as TS Raleigh are recognised by SCC HQ, representing the true values of the Sea Cadet Corps, and local community.

TS Sikh Presentation

Some photos from the recent presentation of the Indefatigable Cup to TS Sikh SCC. All photos courtesy of George Tolly of TS Sikh SCC.

THE country’s second oldest sea cadet corp has won a cup for being the most improved unit.

Beckenham and Dulwich Unit – TS Sikh SCC – was awarded the Indefatigable Cup for 2010 because it was judged to have made sustained progress throughout the year.

Indefatigable School Old Boys Association chairman Colonel Bill O’Leary presented the cup to the unit at its headquarters in Kent House Road, Beckenham.

He then took it back again because the trophy, once the Merseyside Navy League – Swimming Gala Trophy, is so valuable it has to remain at the old Indefatigable School (JSMTC) other than for the presentation.

The winning unit, whose history goes back to 1913, will now receive a shield to keep.

Indefatigable Old Boys, are invited to attend the following event and ceremony on; Tuesday 22th March 2011 (Parade Day/Time: 1915 – 2130).

It gives us the greatest pleasure to congratulate T.S Sikh (Beckenham and Dulwich Unit), on being awarded the Indefatigable Cup for 2010.

This is the fifth time that the Cup has been awarded to the Sea Cadet Corps, to the Sea Cadet Unit that has improved the most during the year (being for 2010).

The Unit made sustained progress throughout last year, with an effective training programme and the taking part of District and Area events.  This has required huge effort and commitment and they thoroughly deserve the award.

Colonel Bill O’Leary 74/76 (IOBA Chairman) will be travelling to the ‘Beckenham and Dulwich Unit’ to make this very special presentation to the Commanding Officer of T.S. Sikh, along with a monetary cheque in person on behalf of the IOBA, on Tuesday 22nd March 2011 (19:15 to 21:30).

Local dignitaries will be also invited, (VIP’s / Members of the Royal Naval Association / The Royal British Legion).

See you there


One of the oldest Units in the Country

This unit is supposedly the second oldest unit in the country with a history that is documented to back to at least 1913 or thereabouts. HMS London was a famous ship within the Royal Navy with a history that includes the Yange Tze incident of 1949 in which she attempted to rescue three navy vessels (HMS Amethyst, HMS Consort and HMS Black Swan). She took heavy damage during the incident. The last HMS London was a Type 22 Frigate (F95) that was sold to Romania in 2002.

The unit has been merged several times with other units. It is believed that Dulwich is actually Dulwich, Crystal Palace and Lambeth Sea Cadets (but that is a bit of a long name!)
