Wisbech Sea Cadets became the first in the country to be affiliated with the Royal Society of St George at a presentation evening.
The honour was presented to the group by national and international chairman Joanna Cadman to Lieutenant Jade Merson.
It took place at the annual sea cadet presentation evening for the unit on February 7, along with parents, carers and sponsors.
The cadets were rewarded for their efforts over the last 12 months and the evening also incorporated a raffle to raise funds for the unit.
Luke Hayes took one of the top honours of the night being named cadet of the year, while Daniel Dumpis was crowned junior cadet of the year.
