Bright and early on Saturday 28 May, five bleary eyed Cadets arrived at Speech Hall after their delayed prom.
Paperwork checked they boarded the minibus and we travelled to Netheravon, Wiltshire, home of the Army parachuting school.
The Cadets took part in theory and practical lessons delivered by our instructor Sue. The Cadets learned how to leave the aircraft, understand where to be according to the wind, how to land and importantly what to do if the parachute does not deploy properly. At the end of the day, they had to pass a practical and written test.
All, passed and Sue informed them that the weather was looking good and they will be able to jump that evening.
The boys signed out their rigs and went for the final brief before boarding the aircraft in reverse order. Will G was to be the first out!
