Exercise Celtic Warrior
Lower Sixth CCF Cadets have just returned from a three-day exercise in the Brecon Beacons.
19 cadets travelled to Sennybridge Training Area in Wales for a range of activities from Wednesday 24th through until Friday 26th May. They were were put through their paces conducting an infiltration march in full kit to set up a patrol base, ambush and reconnaissance patrols. There was also an advance to contact and all against an opposition force provided by the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards, led by Lt Johnnie Palmer-Tomkinson.
The cadets learned a great deal about themselves over this period in Wales and honed their leadership, planning and communication skills.
I am pleased to announce that Ibby Lee (NC) is the new Cadet Regimental Sergeant Major for 2017/18.
Well done to all the cadets who attended.
