594 to the Fore!

A team of select cadets from 594 (Thame) Squadron proved they were the best in a test of field craft skills held recently at Bramley Training Area.

The weekend had originally been scheduled for a Inter-Service Competition with the Sea Cadet Corps and Army Cadet Force – but when the other cadet services pulled out the weekend was quickly offered to all of Thames Valley Wing’s Squadrons, 7 of which took up this short notice challenge.

The cadets were tested in a variety of skills including First Aid, Observation, Radio Communications and various Field Skills. Presenting the trophy was the Chairman of the Berkshire Joint Services Cadet Committee, Colonel Brian Tearle who presented a rare framed picture of a Wapiti biplane to Thame Squadron.
