Junior Cadets Challenged in Overnight Exercise
Last month thirty junior cadets deployed to a nearby farm to be introduced to basic field craft during an overnight exercise.
Fortunately for the cadets it was a clear moonlit night. After erecting the huge army issue tents, patrols were sent out to rendezvous with ‘partisan guerrillas’ before heading back to base for tea and medals, but not before passing through ‘hostile enemy territory’.
Contingent Commander Karen Bentley commented “Although shorter than our normal exercises, it has proved to be very popular with the students.”
