  • Clwyd And Gwynedd ACF

Tuesday evening found members of the Welsh Guards back on the road virtually with an informative and light-hearted session for Holywell, Rhyl, and Brynteg/Bradley detachments.

Thanks to the current restrictions and face-to-face training on hold Sergeant Peter Duffy and his team returned to the virtual world to help support Clwyd and Gwynedd, detachments.

The session covered the delights of the latest military ration packs including revelations on some of the lesser-known Welsh Guards “officers’ extras”. To close the evening before the final question and answers everyone observed a minute's silence for the late Captain Sir Tom Moore.

Sergeant Peter Duffy said” it was a great night tonight, a good turnout from the staff and cadets. To get motivation back for the cadets and Adult staff and also motivation for ourselves we are going to deliver some light-hearted lessons as an alternative to the norm. We will be engaging once again with detachments of C&G ACF throughout the Covid period with LSgt Davies and LCpl Worthington giving informative and humorous lessons in which the cadets can enjoy and participate.”

Looking forward Peter added “We will also be providing lessons soon alongside our fellow infantryman from the Royal Welsh as part of the newly formed Infantry Engagement Team Wales.

Deputy Commandant (Cadets) Bobby Borland who joined in the session said “it was a good turnout, excellent lesson and discussion period afterward” adding “I look forward to other groups of detachments or even whole companies joining together for future virtual sessions whilst we wait for a return to face to face training.”
