126 Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps’ youngest and newest member Katelin Trohan (left) received a temporary promotion for the night taking over for Commanding Officer Lt(N) Jim Bricker (right). 126 Red Deer held their Christmas Mess Dinner exposing the Cadets to Naval Traditions. During these festive times, rules are bent in a playful way. Commanding Officers frequently switch roles and tunics with the youngest member of the unit. This Cadet then becomes the honorary commander for the day. photo submitted
