On Sunday 18th November an enthusiastic bunch of cadets went to Merville Barracks, Colchester to use the 25m range for their 5.56 Fullbore Classification Shoot.
Cadets Swinburn and Fiske and L Cpl Easey and Cpl Gladwell each fired 100 rounds and they shot well. 100mm groupings are rare, but they all managed to succeed and so the scores were the best the Cadet Training Team had seen in a long time. Those cadets that failed to turn up really disappointed me and they missed out on a super day. It was a pleasure, instead, to be able to really devote the huge resources we had at hand to a handful of appreciative and outstanding youngsters whose commitment does them great credit.
Congratulations to Cpl Easey on his ‘battlefield’ promotion!
