Afghanistan wasn't good enough for one of our drivers. Lieutenant (SCC) Eric Goode RNR, the Sea Cadet Corps Deputy District Officer for the Isle of Wight, was invited with his wife, Lieutenant Vicky Goode Royal Naval Reserve, to attend a Garden Party at Buckingham Palace. Vicky is currently the Commanding Officer of TS OSBORNE, Cowes Sea Cadet Unit.

Eric was the Commanding Officer of Ryde Sea Cadet Unit for 10 years before moving on to a Staff Officer role within the Sea Cadet Corps. Eric and Vicky were delighted to accept the invitation to the Palace where they enjoyed tea and meeting other invited guests. Eric, a former Royal Naval Submariner met up with an old friend from Nottingham Submarine Old Comrades after a gap of 20 years. During their time in the Corps, Vicky and Eric have met most of the Royal Family. Hosting a visit from Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, at Cowes Sea Cadet Unit has, to date, been the highlight of their Sea Cadet Career.

Eric's day job is as an LGV1 driver for the Company, distributing freight on the Isle of Wight and he is very proud to be part of the Sea Cadet Corps and enjoys his role as a driver with Steve Porter Transport.
