An outstanding display of fieldcraft and a tremendous parade was the standard 226 ACU marched out of the year with. It was a very busy year, and a challenging one too!

Congratulations to all cadets for helping us attain successes consistently. Thank you to our cadets families, for the time and effort you donate. Thank you to staff for their instrumental role in the operation of a unit, we couldn't open our gates without you.

Lastly, thank you to Captain (AAC) Hinsby. Our final parade this year marks his last activity as the Officer Commanding 226 ACU. Your impact has has left thousands of young men and women changed for the better. An incredible legacy has been left with us.

To our cadets who leave us this year, we wish the best of luck with coming ventures. We hope you time invested with us at the unit will provide some guidance with the challenges that face you next!

Our cadets do so much for 226 ACU and our community, and we are ever grateful of their commitment and service. As such, it is always a great pleasure to spend an evening in recognition of their efforts. Individual achievement was recognised as well as the great success the unit attained throughout the year.

The Guest of Honour for the evening was LTCOL Colin Shadbolt, whom is the deputy commander of the Australian Army Cadets - New South Wales Brigade.

The cadets were also accompanied on the night by their families and friends, as well as many dignitaries and special guests. Some of these include;LTCOL (Ret'd) Christopher Holcroft RFD JP, MAJ (AAC) Jarryd Horn (CO 22BN), CAPT (AAC) Justin Langley (CO BCACU)

226 ACU would like to congratulate all those whom shared the Cadets' special evening and would also like to that those whom provided amazing support before and on the night.

Cadets from 226 ACU participated in several Remembrance ceremonies including at the Beecroft and Cherrybrook cenotaphs.

The Cadets formed a Catafalque party for each memorial and stood guard as the public remembered those lost to history’s conflicts.

The unit would like to appreciate the dedication and hard work put in by these Cadets during the lengthy services, whom selflessly give up their time to support the wider community.

Lest we forget.
