In September 2009 the Royal Navy opened the gates of the Devonport Naval Base in Plymouth to allow members of the public to go on board a huge range of Her Majesty's ships. The Navy Days are a rare chance to get up close to some of the most sophisticated warships in the world as well as watching air displays and events on the water.

The Units display Window Ladder Display team was one of central attractions aboard RFA Mounts Bay. The Cadets made several performances each day.

The Ladder a 12 metres Height structure was erected on the main flight deck of the Ship, which in itself towered over 10.5 metres above the key side, was visible from all around the dockyard.

The team which involved 4 Staff and 9 Cadets was well received by the public as they performed several faultless performances over the weekend.

The Tameside Sea Cadets formed in 1943 and today has a membership of around 80 boys and girls aged between 10 and 18. They meet at Lower Wharf Street in Ashton on Tuesday and Thursday nights, and enjoy a wide range of team activities including sailing and canoeing as well as learning seamanship and leadership skills.
