During April cadets from Greater Manchester ACF attended the Army Cadets National Music Camp at Otterburn. The music camp gives cadets from around the UK the opportunity to come together to learn and further develop their skills in music. Cadets travelled from as far away as the Orkney Islands and Gibraltar, which is a British overseas territory.
Great achievements for two cadets from Greater Manchester ACF Corps Of Drums.
