Around 240 cadets took part, watched by proud relatives, former cadets and other onlookers.

Lieutenant Mark Janner-Burgess, district officer for Suffolk and Norfolk, said: 'The march went very well. Our cadets were looking smart and they have done a lot of preparation over the last four weeks.'

The cadets marched from Norwich Cathedral to St Peter Mancroft Church for inspection.

'The inspection was a success and it was fantastic how it all came together. I could tell that the Captain was really proud and happy with the cadets,' Lieutenant Janner-Burgess added.
