The 1st Shinfield Scout Group invited the Cadet Executive Officer of the Royal County of Berkshire Army Cadet Force Major (Retired) Eamonn Coogan MBE) a 35 year Infantry Veteran of the Regular Army to talk about what is Remembrance and to talk about the Values and Standards of soldiers.
Eamonn spoke to the children for approximately 60 minutes on Values and Standards of the British Army: Selfless Commitment, Courage, Discipline, Integrity, Loyalty, Respect for Others, Lawful, Appropriate Behaviour and Total Professionalism.
Concluding with showing them his medals.
When speaking to Eamonn and I quote ‘I have commanded a Forward Operation Base in Afghanistan but I can assure you entertaining 25, 7 to 11 year olds for 60 minutes challenge all my powers of leadership and management’.
