30 years ..3 decades… and more than 1000 members counts later, I am honored and elated to be part of the 30th anniversary celebration of the Munsang St. John Ambulance Cadet Division and the Munsang Nursing Cadet Division.

I was the lucky appointed one, to be the founding Nursing Cadet Division officer alongside the late Mr. Denis Kin Man Yeung, the founding Ambulance Cadet Division officer in 1981.

I am happy to say that I saw a lot of improvements since 30 years ago. But the most reward came from seeing the many young faces of the cadets. Once I found a cadet attended to wound of a student, I almost wished that I had a broken arm for them to put a sling on!

I encourage all of our Ambulance Cadets and Nursing Cadet not to forget the Cadet Code of Chivalry and live out your life to these
