army cadets join military exercise on Mendips
cadets from Burnham-On-Sea took part in a variety of different
activities during a wet, but well attended event on the Mendip
of the platoon, based near Apex Park, had the opportunity to have
fun and learn a variety of new skills dependant on their current
progression level and age.
majority of the cadets took part in a two-day military exercise.
As well as carrying all of the kit required for two days and nights,
being self sufficient, the cadets' shelter-building skills were
put to the ultimate test during torrential rain and howling winds!
chief instructor on the course was delighted that all of the students
passed their course, three of whom were from Burnham and they
are now equipped to deal with potentially life saving situations.
from Weston-super-Mare to the top of Cheddar Gorge was the task
in store for the Silver Duke of Edinburgh's expedition. The weather
changed for the better on the final day of their trek.
the cadets that attended are looking forward to attending the
next weekend in November. To find out more about the Army Cadet
