At the end of their course the Cadets were formally commissioned as Officers during a ceremony attended by Captain Sue Jameson, Captain Training Royal Navy Reserves.

Chief Petty Officer Justin Blackford, an instructor at BRNC, said:   “All seven cadets did really well on course and are bound to be quality leaders and team members in their future RNR roles.”

The Maritime Reserves is made of the RNR and the Royal Marines Reserves.  In many cases reservists are indistinguishable from their regular counterparts.  In recent years the Maritime Reserves has been involved in a range of operations including counter-terrorism and anti-piracy work in the Gulf.
