150 year celebratory final parade

Cadets from every Unit in NZ parade in Wellington for Remembrance Day as a final Cadet 150 activity


Cadets from every Cadet Unit in New Zealand marched together for the final time as part of celebrating 150 years of NZ Cadet Forces.

Officers and Cadets paraded on the forecourt of Parliament prior to marching to St Paul's Cathedral in Wellington as part of the Remembrance Day services held throughout New Zealand on the closest Sunday to November 11th.

All Cadet Units were encouraged to parade in their own localities on the same day so that the sense of unity across the whole organisation could be reinforced.

This was the final national activity of the New Zealand Cadet Forces in celebrating it's 150 years of existence.
