Shooting in the Sun

On a very sunny day (unlike the last weekend!), which bore little relationship to the weather forecast, the Sqn ran one of its quarterly L98 shoots at Ash Ranges. These events are for the whole Sqn and not just the shooting team as with on the L81 rifle.

Cadets where able to fire several marksmanship practises and the Montgomery of Alamein Competition, as well as Fire with Movement practises (running to a point and then firing at the target). The three highest scores on this part of the day where (out of 85):

Cpl Jack Chavner 61
Cpl Claire Hayes 52
Cdt Ryan Sharp 50

Training on the weapons and testing was also carried out.
