VCC Commandant’s Review

Published on 4th January 2017

The VCC Commandant’s Review parade will take place on Sunday 19 March 2017 at HMS Excellent in Portsmouth to mark the 116th birthday of the Volunteer Cadet Corps.  Cadets and staff from across the VCC will assemble for a ceremonial parade followed by a reception of light refreshments.  We expect a number of high profile Royal Navy and Royal Marines guests to attend.

Cadets will be expected to attend on Sat 18 March 2017 as well for rehearsals (some cadets may need to travel on the Friday afternoon/evening).

Further details about the event and how to apply for spectator tickets will be issued later in January.

New Year, New Website

Published on 2nd January 2017

As we welcome a New Year we also welcome a new website for the Volunteer Cadet Corps.  Our brand new internet presence brings all of our units under one roof and reflects our unified structure as we embark on another busy year and look to expand the organisation.
The new website provides useful information about the VCC as a whole as well as about our individual units.  There are restricted pages allowing registered users to access information relevant to serving cadets and staff, as well as useful links and other helpful information such as forms and safety information.
We intend to develop the website over time so if you have any feedback please let us know.
For serving cadets and staff a letter will be issued later this week with instructions on how to register for the restricted areas of the site.
Please take time to explore and enjoy the pages of our new site.
