In March 1964 the first parade of Training Ship Morrow was held.

More than 50 years later, on 24th May 2014, TS Morrow held another landmark parade with an inspection by Flotilla Commander, Lieutenant Commander Bob Hughes.

LCDR Hughes said, "50 years of youth leadership and training by the navy cadets in Geraldton is a great achievement.

"The cadets showed off their skills well and its good to see such a friendly and motivated group. They are a real credit to Geraldton.

"It was pleasing to see that RSL members from as far away as Carnamah and Three Springs traveled to support the unit during the inspection."

Commanding Officer of T. S. Morrow, Lieutenant Anthony Desmond, said it was a great parade for their 50th anniversary.

"Our next event is a cocktail party reunion is on Saturday 5th July," he said.

"It would be great to see a large turn up of past cadets and instructors. We’d also love to hear from anyone that has any photos or memorabilia of the unit.”
