Cadets on Target

Cadets from the Squadron have had the opportunity to fire the L98A2 rifle 3 times over the Summer holidays with two visits to the ranges at Pirbright and those on camp using the range at RAF Lossiemouth. The cadets, who have to pass stringent tests before live firing, where able to fire practises to try to qualify to marksman badges consisting of their ability to group 5 rds in under 2inches (which is not as easy as it sounds) and then hit a specified area whilst firing under timed conditions. Many cadets where able to qualify for one of the 4 class of Marksman, with Cdt Hussain and Benjafield gaining the highest qualification of the Corps Marksman. The photos show the cadets on the range and Cpl Fox haveing some difficulities with the ammunition box!
