As part of the cadet expansion programme, 6 girls joined 41 Campbell boys on their annual camp at Nesscliffe in Shropshire. Nesscliffe is a central camp run by 11 Signal Brigade CTT with support from the Army Reserve.
Beginning on 1st July with a relaxed day of personal development training, the cadets enjoyed laser tag, climbing and watermanship. They then donned their uniform for a live firing range day, a combat skills day and a day of military skills which included: section battle drills, reaction to contact drills, observation stands and an introduction to the new cadet radio system.
The cadets then visited Campbell College’s CCF sponsor unit: 1 Royal Irish, who have just returned from a deployment in Afghanistan. They put on an interesting programme at Ternhill, where they are based. The programme included: introduction to heavy weapons, vehicles currently used by the Battalion and a display by the Pipes and Drums.
