Nottingham units of the Sea Cadet Corps, Army Cadet Force, Royal Air Force Air Cadets and members of the High School’s Combined Cadet Force competed to become Nottingham’s best Cadet Service in the 2017 competition.
The cadets, aged 15 to 18 years of age, completed in eight activities including Air Rifle Target Shooting, a “Gun Run”, First Aid exercise, Foot Drill, vehicle pull, climbing wall, and “Battle PT”.
All activities involved teamwork, leadership, physical ability and discipline. Each element was assessed and marked to find which of Nottingham’s Cadet Forces would be crowned the champions.
The competition was fierce and the inter Corps rivalry was evident as the cadets battled hard in every element of the competition.
During the afternoon, the cadets were visited by senior representatives of the various cadet forces including the head of the RAF Air cadets, Air Commodore Dawn McCafferty CBE. The Nottingham High school and the Reserve Forces and Cadets association were also represented.
