Women celebrated by Stratford Sea Cadets

TACKLING pirates was the order of the day for Stratford Sea Cadets.

TS Gurkha marked 100 years of women in the Royal Navy and International Women’s Day with a special visit by Lieutenant Commander Suzanne Lynch – a senior Royal Navy Officer and former Sea Cadet – who talked about her recent posting to Djibouti where she was in charge of logistics on counter-piracy naval operation ‘Operation Atalanta’.

Officer in charge, Lt Roger Edmunds said: “We have a high proportion of girls within TS Gurkha so it seemed appropriate to highlight this anniversary.”

And vice chair Chris Wheeler added: “‘Lt Cdr Lync’s presentation really caught the imagination of everyone. This is an area of naval operations that many of the cadets are unfamiliar with.”
