Auckland based Sea Cadet Units will be marching down Queen Street alongside the Royal New Zealand Navy on Saturday 13th December  to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of The Battle of the River Plate.  This is a very special occasion for TS Achilles as our Unit is named after the ship HMS Achilles that was involved in the Battle 75 years ago and the original Ships Bell is displayed at our Unit.

Here is an article about the history of the HMS Achilles and The Battle of the River Plate.

TS Diomede Sea Cadets in Whagarei took part in a march to celebrate 150 years of Cadets in New Zealand.  Don't they look awesome performing the NZ Defence Forces Haka!

This year, TS Achilles Sea Cadets are celebrating 50 years of our Unit.  A Formal Reunion Dinner has been held, along with a Remembrance Service and Unit Open Day.  It was really neat to see previous TS Achilles Cadets and Officers come along and have a catch up...

Cadets from TS Achilles and other Auckland Sea Cadet Units participated in the NZ Navy Damage Control School Program.  This is the same program that NZ Navy personnel complete.  Check out photos of the action below.
