Marine Society & Sea Cadets (MSSC) is deeply saddened by the loss of our Patron, Her Majesty The Queen. Our thoughts and condolences are with The Princess Royal, Admiral of the Sea Cadet Corps, and the entire Royal Family.
The Queen has been a shining star of servant leadership to each of us individually, to our country, to the Commonwealth and across the world, helping shape and enrich the lives of generations. We are hugely grateful for the interest, support and encouragement shown by Her Majesty and the Royal Family for our work and its impact on the lives of thousands of young people and seafarers. The Queen will always hold a special place in our hearts.
The Chair of Marine Society and Sea Cadets, Jeremy Penn, has written a letter to express condolences and sympathy to HM King Charles III on behalf of the charity.
Ensigns across Sea Cadets are being flown at half-mast. The charity now looks to its participation in remembrance events, including Her Majesty’s funeral procession.
For cadets and their families, answers to important questions can be found here.
