Being a Marine Cadet

350 Troop Marine Cadets TS Redoubt is open to both boys and girls aged 10 to 18.

On joining 350 Troop you will be known as a potential Marine cadet recruit (PMCR) and will start your four week introductory period to see if the Marine cadets is for you. After this period you will move on to Marine cadet recruit (MCR) training and be issued with the necessary uniform to complete your four to five months of basic training.

Upon successful completion of this stage you will be allowed to wear your Globe and Laurel cap badge, Marine cadet shoulder flashes and the TS Redoubt patch all of which will be presented to you at your ceremonial ‘pass out’ parade in front of your family and friends.

As a qualified Marine cadet, you will learn new key skills and take part in lessons that will enable you to advance through our syllabus from recruit to MC1.

Some of the activities Marine cadets are trained in are:

  • Command Tasks
  • Sailing
  • Radio Communications
  • Fieldcraft
  • Map & Compass
  • Shooting
  • Continuity Drill
  • Weapons Drill
  • First Aid
  • and much more!

There is also the greener side of things as well; with overnight exercises and camps throughout the year which will give you the opportunity to put some of your new skills into practice. An annual summer camp will include numerous activities like wall climbing, abseiling, canoeing and zip lining.
