2016 Cadet Activities

Receiving the photo

A photographic gift

Late in 2015 the then CDRE John Martin and his wife launched TS Amokura's new Unit safety boat RAUORA. Then CDRE Martin is an ex-cadet of TS Amokura. The event was recording in a series of photographs.

Since being promoted to RADM and appointed Chief of Navy RADM Martin's schedule has been extremely busy but a window occurred recently to allow current members of the training ship to present the RADM with a framed collage of the launching.

The Training Ship's Unit Commander, LTCDR S. Worth (NZCF) commented that "having a Chief of Navy who is an ex-cadet of this Training Ship is further evidence that young people serving with a NZ Cadet Forces Unit have the capability of reaching the very pinnacle of what ever pathways they chose to follow in their lives".
