28 May 2018
During the weekend of 25th - 27th May 2018, cadets and CFAVs from the battalion spent the time with 7 SCOTS. They we’re introduce to and carried out basic fieldcraft skills, sent out recce patrols and homed in on their navigation skills. They had a chance to learn about foreign weapon systems, there history and how the work. Whilst working at night, they used night vision equipment which was very interesting, and this equipment was used at the sentry points to spot possible enemy.
Highlight for some was the training and use of smoke grenades overseen by 3 SCOTS Battalion Training Staff, these smoke grenades were also utilised by the cadets and and CFAVs during the morning attack on our position by 7 SCOTS.
A great weekend had by all and we've included some photos.
