Two brothers from Falmouth have passed their basic training in the British Army within months of each other. Rylee Metcalf passed off in December 2020 at Winchester and Callum Metcalf passed off in April 2021 at Pirbright.

They were both successful Army Cadets, both passing their 4 star Army Proficiency badges and becoming Colour Serjeants.


Rylee at Winchester & Callum at Pirbright

Rylee is joining the Royal Tank Regiment (RTR) following in the footsteps of his father, Chris Metcalf and Callum is joining the Royal Logistic Corps (RLC), hopefully in the tank transporter squadron.

Their father, Chris Metcalf was also a Falmouth cadet before going to 2 RTR then after he left the Army he joined Cornwall Army Cadets becoming the Falmouth Detachment Commander and Company Serjeant Major Instructor.

We wish both Rylee and Callum the best of luck.
