29 Cadets attended the Royal Navy Trafalgar Dinner, one of the Royal Navy’s oldest and most prestigious traditions, which was held on 14 October in the School Hall.
Commemorating the famous Battle of Trafalgar and the death of Lord Nelson, the dinner is also held to remember sailors and marines all over the UK. Traditionally this commemorative dinner is a grand affair, including the ‘parading of the beef’ and chocolate ships known as ‘ships of the line’, and is held and celebrated every year.
The opening Grace was given by the youngest cadet Sophie (Y9) while addresses were given by Charlotte and Silas. The loyal toast (to the Queen) was delivered by George (Y12) and the speech and toast to the ‘Immortal Memory’(of Nelson) was given by Tom, Head of the Royal Navy section (Y13).
