Enrolment Ceremony- March 1st, 2023

Sword Companies' latest intake of recruits take their first proud steps in their Cadet experience.

This was the largest intake attending the enrolment ceremony. Parents, Guardians, Colonel Britt Haggerty, and Detachment Commanders, all watching on proudly.

Selected Cadets from each Cadre gave a presentation on their respective cadre experience, in front of an audience of approximately 150, no mean feat no matter your level of public speaking experience.

Then followed a talk on the Adult experience by CSM Jo Hearn.

In the second half of the evening, the cadets were awarded their Berets by Col Britt Haggerty the Commandant of Wiltshire Army Cadet Force, and OC Sword Company, Major Lee Bampfield.

Marching onto the stage, the cadets formed up ready to be called out and presented their beret to which their Detachment is affiliated. Sword Company has The Rifles Regiment and The Royal Wessex Yeomanry affiliated Detachments.
