Top Shots

Three Teams from the Sqn were selected to attend the Inter Service Cadet Rifle Meet from 03 – 06 Jul at the national Shooting Centre at Bisley. This is the most prestigious shooting event of the cadet calendar and saw 109 Teams from the Sea, Army and Air Cadets competing for the Cadet 100 Award and other trophies. In addition there were teams present from the Canadian Cadet Forces. We had both blazing sunshine and rain over the four days of shooting. The Cadet 100 is awarded to the top 100 shots of the competition, out of the around 500 cadets firing in the event. The L81 7.62 Target Rifle is used at ranges of 300, 500 and 600 yards, and the cadets also shot in the Bisley V Competition at 900 and 1000 yards.

This year 2 Cadets qualified for their Cadet 100s – Sgt Max Lungu and Cpl Stephen Raj; being in the 100 best shots from all 4 cadet services, an excellent achievement!
