A warm Crowborough

The Sqn, together with 1838 Sqn, deployed over 80 Cadets and Staff to Crowborough Training Camp in East Sussex over the weekend of 08 – 10 October to carry out a wide variety of practical training. Unlike the last Crowborough in March the weather was unseasonably warm and dry, which was just as well as all ranks were tenting/bashering on the area due to a lack of accomodation on the main camp!

Cadets of 64 and 65 Recruit Flights carried out basic training including Obstacles Courses, Drill, Leadership training and a Night Navigation Exercise with those cadets passing the course and being awarded their coverted Black Witch Flash.
Other cadets deployed to the Training Area, to carry out Fieldcraft Training under the auspices of ACP16 in a challenging and robust environment with several phases of training to cater for various experience levels. All these cadets had to erect personal shelters know as Bashas to sleep out in, cook and eat compo rations as well as navigate around the area carrying out various tasks.
