Burnham-On-Sea army cadets who represented the county in a regional
Pentathlon are celebrating coming second overall.
George Manchip, Cpl Peter Cebulak and LCpl Angel Mortimer all
competed in the gruelling two-day completion near Torpoint in
Cornwall that involved five different sports against many different
Army Cadet, Marine Cadet and Air Cadet teams from across the south
The event began with a brisk 2.5 mile cross country run around
the Royal Navy course at HMS Raleigh followed by an indoor assault
and agility course.
cadets then moved onto a competitive shoot and finished the day
with a mile speed walk on tarmac. The team were in second spot
overall at the end of day one.
second day involved a 150m swimming competition and all three
proved they were up to the task by winning the event. Despite
not being able to claw back enough points, the team gave the overall
winners, Devon Army Cadet Force, a very close run in. Cpl Cebulak
also picked up the prize for the best individual shot.
Burnham Army Cadets are welcome to join the group and can be male
or female and aged 12-18. The cadets centre is located opposite
Cassis Close and is open on Monday and Wednesday evenings from
Burnham cadets LCpl Mortimer, Cpl Manchip and Cpl Cebulak on the
