COMBINED CADET FORCE


STANDALONE


We are pleased to have received the paperwork confirmation of becoming a standalone Contingent as of September 2017. This is a massive announcement for Matravers as the Contingent will become a core part of our school.


In due course we will look for volunteers to assist our training and hope that parents will become a huge support network as we develop.


Wiltshire Council have continued their support for our organisation, they have very kindly provided a grant for the cadet scorpion air rifle and associated equipment and we send our sincerest thanks to Janette Bowra for her support. We look forward to offering this in our new training plan for the next school year.


AFFILIATION


climbers within the contingent and look forward to developing them.


We returned to the campsite for dinner and some sport before heading out on night navigation. This posed a challenge for the cadets who adapted well and the NCOs who were taking the lead with navigation, did very well although they presented us with a late night stream crossing. This added to the night navigation experience and everyone slept well upon our return to basecamp.


We have successfully affiliated with the Army Air Corps (AAC), we are very lucky to have been positively received by this unit as not many cadet groups are affiliated. Hence forth, we will adopt their beret badge and become proud ambassadors of the 1 regiment AAC and look to visit them in the new school year.


OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES CAMP


The cadets took part in the school Outdoor Activities Camp, we had a significant presence of cadets attend. During their first day, the cadets set up base camp and climbed to the top of the Sugarloaf. It was noticeable to see there camaraderie as they supported each other to the top. The second day was meant to see them undertake rock climbing but the weather had other ideas. So we visited Llangorse Outdoor Activity Centre and used their facilities with Mr Ryle and 2Lt Fairnington running a climbing and bouldering session. We are pleased to see we have some very capable


Our final day saw the troops visit Big Pit, the disused mine and museum in South Wales. We were escorted round by an excellent guide, who was sharing information with the cadets. A key piece, was that not too long ago, they as children would have been working in the mine.


We believe from the response the cadets really enjoyed the outdoor activities camp, so we will look to incorporate this into our cadet training plan for next year.
