Graduation – HMCS Acadia

Daily Image - 19 August 2011 - Graduation - HMCS Acadia

As some of you may be aware, I sit on the Board of Directors of the HMCS Acadia Alumni Association. We support the activities of HMCS Acadia, one of the largest and most successful cadet summer training programmes in Canada. With the support of the Royal Canadian Navy, the Canadian Army and the Royal Canadian Air Force, almost 50,000 Canadian youth participate in programmes that promote citizenship, leadership, teamwork, education and healthy living. The highlight of the year is summer camp, and the highlight of summer camp is graduation.

This is part of the graduating, six-seek Trade Group 3 Boatswain Course. The shot captures them, just after being presented with their Boatswain’s whistles, in the midst of singing Harts of Oak, the Royal Canadian Navy march.
