County Showcase a great success.

18 August 2022

  • Humberside And South Yorkshire ACF

Thursday 18th August saw the first Presentation day since the pandemic. A chance for the county to showcase the activities and achievements of our cadets and adults.

Guests from across the region were in invited to come to CTC Driffield for a day of presentations and activities.

The day began with a presentation explaining the ACF and the activities on offer. This included specific information about this years trips to Aviemore, Cyprus and the static line parachuting expedition. Cdt L/Cpl Boden and Cdt Sergeant Hoyland gave short talks about events they had attended.

Guests were then gathered for a buffet lunch where they were able to talk further with cadets and instructors about what we do.

After lunch the guests were split into smaller groups and moved around the stands.

Cadets who had been on annual camp were involved in a number of stands showcasing a range of the activities on offer. The activities on show included Drill, a command task, a gun run, skill at arms (including a paintball range), communications, the DCCT, and a first aid casualty simulation.

Many of the stands were a dual purpose event with the activity also used to test the cadets in their skills.

At the end of the day the guests gathered together again in and a small number of presentations were made.

SMI Micheal Torr was presented with his cadet forces warrant. SMI Zara Thorpe was presented with a letter of recognition recognising her dedicated service.

Three commandant Coins were awarded. One each to Cadet L/Cpl Boden and Cdt Sgt Hoyland for their contributions to visitors day. Captain Bizzell for his work in media.

Finally RSMI Kirk was presented the Royal Humane Society Testimonial on Parchment. This prestigious award recognises his bravery displayed when performing first aid at a serious road traffic incident.
