Recruits go the Distance

50 Recruits attended Crowborough Training Camp in West Sussex on the Weekend of 14 – 16 Sep to participate in their Recruit Training Weekend. This course, which consisits of Drill, Obstacle Courses, Field Training and cooking, PT, and a Night Navigation Exercise is an intensive and fast moving weekend which challenges the Recruits physically and mentally. The most important aspect is that the Recruits are working towards their coverted "Black Witch" Shoulder Flash, which marks their proper arrival as a full member of the Sqn. and is awarded at the end of the weekend to those who have passed the criteria. To this end the weekend is Pass or Fail, and not an attendance only course!

Another 50 Cadets took part in training for the Innes Sword and Drill Compeitions and field and Leadership Training, which was blessed by excellent weather.
