D Company Navigation weekend

8 February 2020

Over 70 young people and 20 instructors are currently on their navigation training weekend at our weekend training centre.

Navigation is an essential life skill, you know how to navigate to your local shops or friends house but what happens when you’re in the middle of nowhere? This valuable skill teaches you how read a map and use a compass for navigation.

Starting with the very basics of understanding how a phone box is represented on a map all the way up to back-bearings and resections. This is an essential skill for when you’re out in the field.

Senior cadets are also having lessons on Cadet Forces Instructional Techniques (CFIT) and learning the skills to create and present their own lessons to other cadets.

The 4 star cadets are out on their nav expedition.
