The City of Christchurch Cadet Unit recently celebrated the 25th Anniversary since its first parade at King Edwards Barracks in 1988.
CCCU was the only open NZ Cadet Corps Unit in Christchurch, from a time when school cadet units were closing. Many young people wanted to be part of a cadet unit that had the Army flavour and CCCU filled the demand.
The celebrations included former Cadets and Officers plus several founding cadets and staff.
A camp was held at West Melton for the cadets followed by a formal dinner for current staff and past Officers and cadets.The weekend concluded with a celebratory parade
The Unit is well poised for the next 25 years service to the young people of the Christchurch area.
