Last week was a hive of activity at Cadets.
A Company headed to Hugh Bamford Reserve for an afternoon of Archery, B Company enjoyed Laser Tag in the Quad, C Company learnt some important safety actions for AFX before learning how to put up an 11 x 11 military tent, and D Company tested their physical prowess on the Climbing Wall.
Interspersed with the action were lessons on ration packs, how to pack a pack for hiking, health and hygiene in the field, how to put up a hutchie, and skills in sight and sound ready for tactical manoeuvres on camp. Each Company will take turns at all these events in the coming weeks.
Preparing for AFX
Support Company is busy bringing their skills up to par for AFX as well. Our Medics are being professionally trained by an external First Aid provider, so they can support their recruits with minor injuries on camp. Pioneers are practising the exciting activities they have planned for the recruits on camp. Signallers are practising Ratel and Media are capturing the lot on camera.
We thank our hardworking team in Q Store, led by the QM and the LOGSO, for putting together the stores requests from week to week, and preparing supplies and equipment for camp.
AFX is X Platoon’s time to shine, and we look forward to seeing the culmination of their training at Majura MTA in April.
Only 6 weeks to go until camp!
