Cadet Corporal Ernest Hutchinson, 16, Snodland Detachment:
"I joined the Army Cadet Force because I am interested in joining the Army and I thought it would give me a good insight - so I joined as soon as I could. Personally I think annual camp was the best especially fieldcraft, I really enjoy shooting blanks and patrolling. I think the best bits about cadets are also teaching the younger cadets because it gives me experience and I like to talk in front of a large group of people.
I would encourage people to stay in cadets - you won’t regret it if you commit to it and you can climb the ladder".
