A Bromley sea cadet was presented with a Jack Petchey Achievement Award last week for performing duties above his rank.
George Connolly, 16, is from the Bromley Unit and received the medallion and £200 cheque for his efforts in helping adult instructors train new recruits.
The event, held at Kensington Great Hall, honoured people nominated by their peers aged between 11 and 25.
More than £26,000 is provided by the awards to the Marine Society & Sea Cadets each year, and to date £1.5million has been awarded since funding began in 2003.
George’s £200 grant was used to purchase rucksacks for his unit’s future expedition work.
