On Sunday 10th and Monday 11th March forty cadets from the Army Section attended an action-packed field weekend on Thetford training area.
Battling sleet, rain and high winds was challenging, but they rose to the occasion, as they always do, and we kept to the programme. The Year 10 recruits passed their weapon handling tests and fired blank for the first time with a series of ambushes, section attack and platoon attack scenarios. Meanwhile the senior cadets set up a platoon harbour and honed more specialist fighting skills.
A cold night was had under bashas and in shipment containers, but at least we saw some sun on Monday.
