We have a full set of The Cadet magazine from the first issue in 1889 to the last in 1974.

If you would like a copy of any edition, page or feature these can be provided for a small donation to cover the cost of research, printing and postage, and to support the upkeep of the Conway Chapel at Birkenhead Priory. Similarly we can research individual cadets, members of staff, events or subjects. Contact Alfie Windsor for more information.


We now have a compete set of Conway’s Annual Reports, the indexes to the Cadet Registers and the Cadet Registers on microfilm. We can research individual OCs and produce a printed summary of his Cadet Records in a presentation folder which makes an attractive gift or memento.

Searches are subject to the constraints of the European GDPR (2018) which restricts access to potentially sensitive information about living individuals.
