As ever, Dorset ACF has continued to be busy over the past week.

WIMBORNE DETACHMENT:

This week cadets from Wimborne Detachment took part in a Navigation exercise to locate caches using a grid referenced map and what3words.
On Thursday, there were Command Tasks and group activities, with new adult instructors and 6 new cadets these activities really helped everyone to work together and get to know each other.


FIELDCRAFT WEEKEND - DAY 1

Trainee 1 Star Cadets from around the County came together in their Training Bubbles at our Dorchester HQ for a weekend of Fieldcraft Training and were put through their paces getting up to speed with Basha Building, Camouflage and Concealment, and Field Signals. Training continues today - watch this space for updates.


EAST COMPANY SAA / SHOOTING:

East (El Alamein) Company continued with their Skill at Arms and Shooting Days with Cadets from Wallisdown and Parkstone Detachments attending to train, complete Weapon Handling Tests and shoot on the Scorpion Air Rifle and Cadet Small Bore Target Rifle.
