A Book of Remembrance


LT Colin Marshall (RNR)

Colin started at Peterborough Sea Cadets in 1941 as a young cadet.  After his period of national service in the Navy he returned and spent his life as a volunteer helping many young cadets have an amazing experience and create lifelong memories. He was an active part of the unit even in his 90’s, but sadly in the last few years his health kept him away.

The Staff and Unit Management would like to honour his memory by asking any cadet or staff past and present who have found memories of Colin to share them here, so his family and loved ones can see the impact he had on so many. 

Many thanks 

Staff and UMT

What a decent fellow. He always had time for us cadets. Driving us around the district for various courses and competitions. At 12 years old I remember him helping me plan my journey to Cludrose. He intalled so much confidence and life skills helping me start my journey in life. Rest In Peace Sir. Calm winds and fair seas. …
