Over the weekend 29 – 31 October, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Cadets descended on the Cadet Training Centre, Langley Lines ahead of the start of this years Royal Hampshire Cup Competition. An inter-company skills competition, the Hampshire Cup is a yearly competition which tests the knowledge, skills, and teamwork of a select of Cadets from each Company. The results of this, and other competitions throughout the year, form part of the scores for the Champion Company Competition.
Arriving Friday night, the cadets received the team brief and picked their running order for the start of the competition in the morning. They were then given the main events list and required kit lists for each of the stands to ensure the rest of their team had all the equipment they will need.
Saturday morning began with a hearty breakfast before everyone head off to the Parade Square to undertake their Turn Out inspection with the RSM.
