The Sea Cadet, No. 3, Vol. 3, November 1945

the individual championship and the bronze medal of the National Rifle Association. SWIMMING LEADERS Area swimming contests have natur­ally been overshadowed by the national championships reported elsewhere in this issue. Here, briefly, however, are some of the results: The London Area Championship was won by Beckenham with 46 points, Edgware being second with 39 points. As the London Area went onto win the national event, Beckenham’s perfor­mance was outstanding. It rounded off a fine string of sporting successes. In the Southern Area Championship, Sussex fought a great duel with Buck­ inghamshire, Berkshire and Oxford­ shire to win by a margin of one point. Surrey were third. Hastings unit, who provided five members of the winning team, also provided hospitality overnight for eighty competitors who had travelled from far afield. Southampton, with a total of 38 points, won the cup for the No. 3 Zone Swimming Championships. Bourne­mouth were runners-up with 24 points, followed by Parkstone with 21. HOME SECRETARY’S ADVICE An All-Nations’ Swimming Gala at Epsom in aid of the Epsom and Ewell unit’s headquarters building fund was so successful that people had to be turned away when all the available standing room had been taken. Mr. Chuter Ede, the Home Secretary, was present and on the invitation of the Mayor addressed a few words to cadets and parents. Training in the S.C.C., he said, gave boys an opportunity of learn­ing comradeship and habits of good discipline. Parents should do all they could to encourage boys and girls to join a pre-Service unit. At the gala atrophy presented by the Epsom Commanding Officer for annual competition among pre-Service units was won by the A.C.F. £350 FROM CRICKET MATCH A cricket match between the Kenton Club and a British Empire XI, which included such famous players as Learie Constantine, T.N. Pearce, Ray Smith and C.B. Clarke, yielded £350 in aid of the Kingsbury and Kenton unit’s head­quarters building fund. This fine effort was organized by the Kenton C.C., who have kindly given the unit the use of their grounds and build­ings as headquarters throughout the war. The match scores were: Kenton. 58 Empire XI, 158 for 7. Afterwards Con­ stantine's bat was auctioned in aid of the fund and realized 16 guineas. EDINBURGH GYMKHANA A magnificent show was put on by Sea Cadets and Sea Rangers at a victory athletic gymkhana at Edinburgh, in the presence of the Lord and Lady Provost. The sports results were: Edinburgh No. 3,13 points Edinburgh No. 4,13 Edinburgh No. 1,12 Edinburgh No. 2,12 Grangemouth, 8 Falkirk, 5 Alloa, 3 Bo’ness, 3 Prestonpans, 2 Edin­burgh No. 5,1. The football and tug-of-war were both won by the Falkirk unit. Nelson and Trinity units tied for the challenge cup which had been presented by the Chairman, Sir Henry Steele, and it was decided that each unit should hold it for six months. On the toss of a coin Nelson took possession for the first six months. CORRECTION The honours in the Surrey Athletic Championships went to Farnham and not Caterham, as reported in our last issue. The placings were: Farnham, 52 points (and the County Championship), while Caterham and Guildford, with 30 points each, tied for second place.
