The Green Bugle

Over the last couple of weeks, the Cadet unit has been busy preparing for the upcoming Annual Field Training. For our recruits and second year platoons, this will be the first AFT due to COVID-19 restrictions last year. AFT is a 5-day camp where cadets as a platoon face new challenges each day while demonstrating camaraderie, discipline, and an endless supply of skills learnt over the camp.

This week, HQ company was working away, continuing to plan activities to do over the duration of the camp. The activities have been designed to be exciting, so that each cadet can have a memorable time while forming stronger ties with one another. Alpha and Bravo rank were teaching their cadets how to give an effective lesson as this would be tested in the upcoming weeks. The Charlie company rank gave lessons on navigation, while Delta worked hard on improving their drill with the ADJ.

Preparations for AFT include; learning and refining skills such as navigation, radio procedures, drill movements, first aid and more. Over the next two weeks, all cadets will need to ensure they have purchased and collected the correct equipment. The full list can be found in the email sent out to parents. Having the correct gear makes life much easier when operating in the field.
