The newly formed Royal Marines Combined Cadet Force at Ernest Bevin College marked Remembrance Day by laying a wreath of poppies and leading the whole school in observing a two minute silence on Friday 10th November.

Contingent Commander, Nick Mason said: “The Cadets have come so far since they paraded for the first time in April this year. It is incredible to believe that just over six months from that day, they have organised this service of remembrance themselves. We hope next year to have more cadets and to expand our service to commemorate 100 years since Armistice Day 1918.”



The New RM CCF unit at Ernest Bevin is part of the Cadet Expansion Programme (CEP), and is one of only two Royal Marine units in London. Vice Admiral Jonathan Woodcock OBE, Second Sea Lord and Deputy Chief of the Naval Staff attended the Grand Opening ceremony of the college’s Royal Marines CCF Detachment and inspected the Cadets before he took the salute earlier this year.

The CCF is a voluntary youth organisation that operates in state and independent schools across the country. The aim of the programme is to promote military ethos in schools, to instil values in young people that will help them get the most out of their lives, and contribute to their communities across the country.
