Rain, Rain – Go Away

Despite torrential rain showers, cadets from East + West Sectors have just completed another Field Craft Introduction day at Bramley Training Area. 

The day was attended by cadets from 155 (Maidenhead) Squadron, 381 (Reading) Squadron and 2211 (Bracknell) Squadron and covered the lessons that the cadets need to complete to attend the forthcoming Tactical Leadership Camp being held in November. The lessons included how to cook a ration pack, kit maintenance, hygiene and camouflage techniques.

After the cadets had learnt the basics they put their new skills into practice by completing an exercise involving map reading, patrolling, radio communications and code breaking!

Sector Commander, Squadron Leader Mark Trevena, who helped organise and run the day said “despite the very wet weather today, the cadets a have really put their all into the training today. It was great to have a good bunch of cadets from three Squadrons along today – next time we will hopefully be even bigger and better”.
