LEFT, right, quick march!

More than 70 young sea cadets took to the streets in Barnsley to commemorate one of the Royal Navy’s greatest ever victories.

The cadets from across the region were marking Trafalgar Day, which celebrates the Battle of Trafalgar victory and Nelson’s death in 1805.

Youngsters formed up outside Barnsley Town Hall before marching down Regent Street, showing off their skills and talent to local dignitaries and spectators.

CPO Caroline Devonport, from the Barnsley sea cadet unit, said: “Our cadets only had one day to practise and co-ordinate their moves with the other South Yorkshire cadets for the very exacting and precise display.

“It’s a big reflection of the hard work, dedication and passion these young people have invested. We are really proud of them.”
