Fit for Role

The Sqn carried out its annual fitness assessment on Monday 24 Sep. This consists of a timed 1.5 mile run, press ups, sit ups and pull ups, and gives each cadet an idea of their fitness levels.

The timings are varied for age and sex, with uniformed staff and NCOs expected to be 30 seconds faster that their age/sex time.

Supervised by the Sqns CSLA Staff and NCOs the streets of Woodford saw cadets and staff pushing around the run in various states of fitness. Even the Sqn OC, by no means a gazelle, took part and pasted the time for his age by 6 seconds!

The fastest males were Cdt Dareen Southcott (7.47) closely followed by Cpl Rob Fothergill (7.forty eight) and the fastest girl Cdt Robyn Henry (9.22).
