E Company held their annual inter-platoon skills competition over the weekend of 17-19 March. All 5 platoons fielded teams and the competition was fought very hard with a good competitive spirit. Cadets took part in a number of different disciplines including shooting, archery, navigation, observation, military knowledge, first aid and physical training. Up for grabs were plenty of trophies with the top 3 teams winning a trophy for display at their units plus medals for the team members, there were also trophies for cadets that stood out during the weekend which the staff nominated and chose Best Cadet and Best Cadet NCO.
After the final event which was Physical Training the scores were added up and for the third year running (a record!) 6 (Chesham) Platoon's A Team were the winners with 21 (Princes Risborough) Platoon's A Team in second place and just 10 points behind the winners, and then 4 (Aylesbury) Platoon's A Team 10 points behind them in 3rd place.
All cadets returned home on Sunday tired but in good spirits and looking forward to the next Company weekend where we will deploy to the field for a training exercise in May.
Best Cadet - Cdt Ateem 4 (Aylesbury) Platoon
Best NCO - Cpl Legge 7 (Hawkslade) Platoon
