Sea Cadets on 450.25 NFM, not a military freq, and that band is supposedly made available on a temporary basis.

Don't know where from, but callsign ("MFT") suggests their South West region (Based in Bristol, though exactly what area it covers is unclear)
I guess it is probably a repeater from the signal, don't what the input f is.
Best guess from signal strength is Gloucestershire/ Worcestershire area.

Not all Sea Cadets are Military. Some are Scouts with Royal Navy support. I know one troop in Norwich is. But as you say, a strange choice.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Navy_Recognised_Sea_Scouts

There are 103 Sea Scout Groups in the United Kingdom and one group in Gibraltar who are affiliated to the Royal Navy in order to foster a close relationship between the Royal Navy and young people in the Scout Association by making naval facilities and equipment accessible.

I do not know about Sea Cadets, but Army Cadets use PMR simple/light or what ever it's called.
