Hello everyone, Why not brighten your day with a look at our new song, Driving to Hunstanton.
A new track which wont be appearing elsewhere else because we cant afford a license….
Released by Lal and Mike Waterson in 1972, it is regarded as a British Folk classic until we covered it…
Jimmy Osmond and/or Neil Reid fans should look away now…….
The Sea Cadets pay tribute to their Mums.
Happy Mothers Day to all Mothers and children of Mothers…
Watch the video here…..
Nice article and Rob looks good 🙂
“Mr Rix spoke fondly…”
Our 2018 World Cup song is finally ready.
Here’s our 2020 Euros song nice and early……
'For Essex Calves a Pasture' is our new track, in it we protest about the Land Enclosures Act and call on the men of the Fens to rise up and prevent the toffs of Essex from taking our land. 17th Century Politics. Wooo !
Come, Brethren of the water, and let us all assemble,
To treat upon this matter, which makes us quake and tremble;
For we shall rue it, if''t be true, that Fens be undertaken
And where we feed in Fen and Reed, they'll feed both Beef and Bacon.
They'll sow both beans and oats, where never man yet thought it,
Where men did row in boats, ere undertakers brought it:
But, Ceres, thou, behold us now, let wild oats be their venture,
Oh let the frogs and miry bogs destroy where they do enter.
Behold the great design, which they do now determine,
Will make our bodies pine, a prey to crows and vermine:
For they do mean all Fens to drain, and waters overmaster,
All will be dry, and we must die, 'cause Essex calves want pasture.
Away with boats and rudder, farewell both boots and skatches,
No need of one nor th'other, men now make better matches;
Stilt-makers all and tanners, shall complain of this disaster,
For they will make each muddy lake for Essex calves a pasture.
The feather'd fowls have wings, to fly to to other nations;
But we have no such things, to help our transportations;
We must give place (oh grievous case) to horned beasts and cattle,
Except that we can all agree to drive them out by battle.
The Sea Cadets are over 13 so do not have TikTok, Snapchat or Instagram accounts.

The Sea Cadets were originally formed in 1980 when the Exploding Hamsters imploded.
Demo recordings and a single gig preceded a 30 year hiatus when Gary was sent into Exile (Essex)
New recording in 2014 led to BBC 6Music plays followed by a single (Chameleon) and Album (Sail Away) which sold in almost negative numbers but proved Spotify favourites in Scandinavia and the USA.
Singles in 2016 and 2018 led to more airplay on BBC 6Music and Radio Norfolk Introducing (cool, considering we are both over 200 years old) and led to an appearance on the 2017 Emotional Response Christmas Compilation CD.
An EP is planned for Autumn 2018.
