Virtual Promotions at Dorset ACF
It was fantastic to see the third virtual promotion from Dorset ACF.
“This is our latest Virtual Promotion, we’ve done three so far and there’s another one on the horizon as one of our CFAV’s moves from Capt to Maj - just awaiting the footage!
We don’t let the lockdown stop us recognising everyone’s efforts - Cadets and CFAVs both.”
Our #VirtualACF activities continue with another Virtual Promotion - This time at Wallisdown as LCpl Franks was promoted to Cpl by East (El Alamein) Company Commander Capt Brooks— Dorset ACF (@Dorsetacf) April 11, 2020
