Cadets mark 150th anniversary in St George's Day parade





Air, Army and Sea Cadets from London have marked the 150th anniversary of the cadet movement with a St George's Day parade in Whitehall.

More than 200 cadets took part in the parade, which was followed by a ceremony at The Cenotaph.

The Cadet Corps was formed in 1860 to increase the UK's fighting force after heavy losses in the Crimean War.

They have since evolved into voluntary organisations, offering young people opportunities to develop themselves.
