Captain’s BZ: spring 2022

Captain Sea Cadets celebrates some of the achievements of cadets and units around the UK

BZ is a naval term that means ‘well done’. It comes from the Bravo and Zulu nautical signal flags being flown together.

Newport Unit rises from the ashes

In 2020, Newport was hit by devastating flooding, destroying works aleady under way. Treasurer Ann Bowen raised £120,000 and the unit has reopened after lots of hard work by the team. BZ to all those involved!
