Gosport Division RMVCC, a Royal Marines unit within the Volunteer Cadet Corps, co-located at HMS Sultan RNVCC. Rooted in the legacy of the Royal Marines Light Infantry Cadets from the early 1900s.




At Gosport Division RMVCC, our foundation lies in a comprehensive cadet training syllabus. Crafted to bring out the best in our cadets, it equips them with versatile skills applicable throughout their lives. The syllabus centers on these 10 core training themes:


- Fieldcraft

- Drill and Personal Turnout

- Military Knowledge

- Skill at Arms

- Navigation

- First Aid

- Fitness and Wellbeing

- Community Engagement


Our young members revel in their cadet training, engaging in military skills competitions, diverse sports, and fostering an understanding of both their community and the broader naval service. Beyond skill-based instruction, our cadets participate in weekend and summer camps during school breaks and represent the unit at significant public events like Armed Forces Day.


A standout activity for us is the cadet Field Gun competition. Drawing from Royal Navy traditions, our active field gun crew competes against other VCC units, maneuvering an original Boer War 7lb field gun across an 85-yard course. It's a rigorous challenge that embodies naval core values and culminates in pursuing the Command Trophy.




We welcome youngsters aged 9 to 16 from the local area, accepting applications before the age of 9 for our waiting list. Regardless of background, our cadets unite in teamwork and mutual respect. By joining us, they embrace daily challenges, cultivating skills that set them apart among their peers.




The VCC operates thanks to the dedication of our team of adult volunteers. From ex-servicemen to interested parents, our volunteers contribute diverse experiences, shaping the success and well-being of our cadets. Join us in positively impacting our cadets' lives while upholding our regulations.
