150 year celebratory march

Whangarei combined NZCF Corps perform the haka


Cadets from the three NZCF Corps located in Whangarei marched together for the first time in 40 years as part of celebrating 150 years of NZ Cadet Forces.

40 Cadets and 8 Officers were accompanied by the Whangarei Brass Band and a police escort as they marched through the main shopping area of the city.

After halting to perform the NZCF haka for the Whangarei MP, Mr Shane Reti, the march continue to the Civic Centre where the parade was inspected by the city Mayor.

All involved thoroughly enjoyed the experience. They felt it helped lift the profile of the organisation to a higher level than it has been at in the recent past.
