It was a great honour to be selected to represent CCF (Royal Navy) and King Edward's School Birmingham CCF RN against the Army Cadet Force and the Air Training Corps at the West Midlands Beating Retreat Tattoo. Each team did a timed run. Times were close and the ATC in particular had us worried, but our teamwork carried us through and it was great to bring home the trophy for the Senior Service! We understand this will be an annual event from now on, but ours will always be the first name on the trophy.
