victoria-meets-princess-anneThree Warsash cadets (Victoria Bolitho, Philip Hillier and Bryan Andrews) were part of the colour party at the Shipping Festival Service at Winchester Cathedral on 13 June. The service is an annual service of dedication which celebrates and gives thanks to God for the continuing prosperity of the shipping industry and the safety of seafarers.

HRH The Princess Royal attended the service and read the lesson and the Right Reverend Jonathan Frost, Bishop of Southampton, ministered the Evening Service of Dedication, where he talked about the importance of the maritime industries.

Organised by the Southampton Master Mariners' Club, the service was also attended by the Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire, Dame Mary Fagan, the mayors of Winchester and Southampton and other dignitaries.
