Welcome to Cadet Week 2018. July 30th – August 3rd
CADETS REMEMBER 1918-2018
First World War’s last year to be marked 100 years on By Mersea Cadets.
As the Centenary of the Armistice approaches many of our collective memories are fading.
Cadets Remember 2018 is an opportunity to refresh the memories of the gift of liberty that the soldiers, sailors, airmen and civilians of the First World War afforded the continent of Europe.
The course of our own times has been indelibly influenced by the events of 1914-1918 and their aftermath, as were the lives of our ancestors, and so we remember.
We would encourage all Cadets to research and share their family wartime histories both on the battlefield and the home front.
It is great to see both the Dabchicks and the West Mersea Yacht Club working together to create a memorable Cadet Week 2018.
My thanks as ever, to our amazing Social & Sailing Team, our Platinum, Gold and valued Supporters. Boat loaners, anonymous donors, fuel givers, beach crew and wader wearers, computer programmers & logo designers, lawn crew, safety crew, beach crew, galley crew, tally masters, race officers, spotters, mark layers, club launches … the list goes on! Together we make it happen.
Cadets please remember to say thank you!
Let us remember…
This years theme is remembering the ending of WW1. Have you got a story to share? Where were your great grandparents? Maybe you have old photos of Mersea around the time…..
Please share them with us.
