Navigation in the Forest

On a wet Saturday morning cadets from the Leading Class attended a practical Navigation lesson in the wilds of Epping Forest.

The practical training is designed to reinforce and emphasie the previous classroom training in this essential skill and is the foundation of all subsequent map reading at Crowborough and the Wild Country areas of the UK that the cadets will experience over the next year.

Another two sessions will follow, hopefully with a more benign weather pattern over the area!
