Into the Forest Again

On an icy Saturday morning cadets from the Leading class attended the second lesson of practical navigation skills in Epping Forest. The lessons focused on strengthening the skills learned last week and in the theory sessions, and also try out some other techniques such as contouring and hand-railing

Whilst the navigation skills demonstrated were good, timing skills perhaps need to be practised some more as two of the three groups returned 45 minutes late!
