Cadets take part in a field exercise with Newbury Squadron

966 (Wallingford) Cadets Hupe, Why and Payne joined Newbury in a joint fieldcraft exercise at Bramley training area lasting 4 days.  During the 4 days, the cadets had to overcome different challenges like camping out in bivvys and cooking on hexamine. Cadets were also given training on reconnaissance, ops (building a shelter, hiding and spying on the enemy) contact drills and navigation by the staff of various squadrons.  They were then given opportunities to test these new skills in 2 night exercises on Saturday and Sunday.  All the cadets said they thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and would encourage others to come to any future fieldcraft exercises.
