  • Humberside And South Yorkshire ACF

This weekend 24 to 26 March 2023. Cadets from C Company descended on Driffield CTC for their Company Camp.

Two days of horizontal rain mixed with a bit of sunshine didn't dampen Cadets enthusiasm.

Cadets focused mainly on Skill at Arms, Air Rifle Shooting, Drill and Turn Out, Signals and First Aid - with lots of subject passes completed.
