At Christmas, it is easy to forget those less fortunate than us and this was brought home on our most recent Company Weekend.
Our December weekend is traditionally our Christmas weekend. In addition to Syllabus Training, we have Christmas festivities.
One of our cadets, unfortunately, found out that his Fathers house had a significant fire, and amongst other parts of the house devastated his bedroom. This was made worse when the local fire brigade published a picture of his room on Social Media before he was able to get home.
He showed overwhelming courage and determination by not letting it affect his weekend experience. Pushing through to the end which must not have been easy, with such a life-changing event happening at home, so close to Christmas.
Fortunately, no one was hurt but an awful event for him and the rest of his family.
Wiltshire ACF always says ‘we are family’ and when best to show that when a Cadet is having some hardship.
