LINCOLN ROYAL MARINES CADETS WIN GIBRALTAR CUP
Congratulations to Lincoln Royal Marines Detachment, which won this year's Gibraltar Cup!
The gruelling three-day contest came to an end yesterday, with Lincoln winning by a four-point margin.
The event takes place at the Commando Training Centre Royal Marines (CTCRM), Lympstone, Devon, and the finalists were assessed on skills such as camouflage and concealment, observation, judging distance, practical leadership and patrol lanes.
The Captain Sea Cadets, Captain Phil Russell, said: “Gibraltar Cup is the highlight of the Royal Marines Cadets calendar, and it was great to see all the hard months of training pay off.
“Well done to all the detachments, who should be really proud of their efforts, and congratulations to Lincoln, who won what a closely-fought contest."
Chatham finished in sixth place, Queensferry placed fifth, and Plymouth (Drake) came in fourth. Maldon and District was third, while Preston was the runner-up.
