HASLEMERE DETACHMENT

  • SSI Freeman-White

    Role: Detachment Commander

    "Welcome to Haslemere detachment! We are run by myself, Colour Sergeant Freeman-White with the help of PI Lamb and Harvey the Detachment Dog. I've been an Instructor for 10 years, Parading at a number of different detachments. I took over the running of Haslemere Detachment in September 2018 and since then we've grown substantially. Haslemere Detachment offers cadets the opportunity to work through a number of subjects including, Drill, Shooting, Navigation, Expedition Training, First Aid and many more. There is also the opportunity to obtain "real world" qualifications such as the Duke of Edinburgh award and a CVQ in Public Services. We are always recruiting cadets between the ages of 12-18, so please come down to the ACF Hut on Weyhill, Haslemere on either a Tuesday or Thursday evening from 19:30-21:30 and speak to one of our Instructors."

  • PI Lamb

    Role: Detachment Instructor

    "Hi, my name is PI Lamb. PI stands for Probationary Instructor and basically means I'm going through my training still. I'm very new to the ACF having joined in September 2019 but I've come in and hit the ground running. I don't come from a military background but I was looking for something to do and opted to help the Army Cadet Force as an adult volunteer. I have to say that in these few short months, I've had a blast. Helping the cadets is always fun, no matter what we're doing there are always high spirits and high jinx. Each parade night, I'm guaranteed a laugh and it's also incredibly warming watching the cadets achieve their goals and therefore their APC Star awards. The most poignant thing for me as a newbie is seeing how all the cadets really help each other, especially the older cadets. Everyone wants everyone to succeed. I think this is incredibly refreshing and something I'm proud to be a part of. We're always looking for new recruits but also Cadet Force Adult Volunteers (CFAVs). If you think you can spare some time to help out, it would be great to hear from you. As adult volunteers, we do get remunerated, which was great to find out. This money helps me cover the costs of my volunteering, with a little left over to put towards something fun. Any potential Cadets and Adult Volunteers are always welcome to pop in and see us at the ACF Hut on Weyhill, Haslemere, either on a Tuesday or Thursday evening from 7:30pm. We hope to see you soon!"

  • Harvey

    Role: Detachment Dog

    "Hi. My name is Harvey and I'm the Haslemere Detachment Dog. I'm very proud of my position as chief tail wagger and welcome licker. If you have any questions or just want a friendly ear to listen, you can come and speak to me. I don't bite but I do give amazing cuddles. I don't visit the Detachment as much as I'd like but when I do, I get fussed over lots and everyone loves me. I love being a dog. Haslemere Detachment is a great place to be. I especially like the stream and woods behind the hut - we play in there lots. Hope to see you soon! Woof "
