Cambrian Partol 2017

6 April 2017

Last week 8 Cadets from Oxfordshire ACF took part in the Cambrian patrol Competition.

The weather was typical Sennybridge, cold, wet, windy, followed by dry warm and sunny. The competition was one of the hardest things the cadets had ever done, combining endurance with military skills. This competition is not for the faint-hearted and all 8 should be proud of their achievements this weekend.


2nd Lieutenant Andrew Stone was the Officer Commanding the Battalion Team

“I would personally like to thank them for the commitment they have shown in the training leading up to the competition and for having the guts to step outside their comfort zone to take part. A great achievement. I would also like to thank RSMI King and PI Croser for being part of the team, without their help the team would not have been able to attend. We now have a much better idea of what is required and will be sure of achieving a better result next year.”


Colonel Daren Bowyer, Commandant Oxfordshire ACF said "Fantastic; well done to all. This really is one where it is all about the 'taking part'. This is a really demanding event and the team should feel very proud of themselves. Thank you to you, RSMI King and PI Croser for the effort you have put in to give them this opportunity."


Corporal H Adams "Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to take part in Cambrian Patrol, it's by the far the HARDEST thing I've ever done, I feel privileged to have been with such an amazing team. We really couldn't have done it without the help of the instructors though. Honestly the best thing I've ever done, people can really shock themselves when put to the test, I did."
