Working on knots

Charlie Company did a great job on Friday with their Hutchie activity, mastering their knots and hutchie construction for a weatherproof shelter on AFX. Moving night locations each day on camp means that, by the end of camp, our recruits will be experts at quickly setting up and taking down a shelter.

Delta Company enjoyed the Snake Man who brought in his live reptiles to explain what to look out for when in the Australian bush. While waiting for their turn with the snakes, Delta worked really well on their basic Drill Skills, mastering Right Dress, Right Turn, Attention and At Ease.

Q Store

There are still recruits who have not yet collected their second set of DPCU from the Q Store. Recruits from platoons 9-12 are also invited to now collect their uniform.

Parents/carers, please be aware that Q Store will be open until Friday, 24 March 2023. There will be no provision to issue any gear after 24 March. If your son only has one set of uniform when packing for camp, he will have to make it last the week.

Four weeks to go!
