On the first weekend of the Easter holidays, the Army Section of KSW CCF competed in the Brigade Military Skills Competition.  The cadets performed extremely well completing tough challenges across the weekend with sub-zero temperatures on both nights.

The team, under the leadership of Colour Sgt Jamie W, completed activities covering key sections of the Army Proficiency Syllabus such as Navigation, Harbour Areas, Command & Signals, Casualty Evacuation under fire, Anti-Ambush drills, First Aid, as well as a Gun Run.  The second day involved an orienteering and air rifle shooting competition, which the team completed extremely quickly and effectively.

Overall, the team performed to a consistently high standard across all the areas and were awarded the Brigade Military Skills trophy.

Many congratulations to all who took part – Alicia F, Emilia D, Jamie W, Will E, Giles H, Amy H, Bobby R, Will T, Sophie P and Archie M.
