Tuesday’s Instagram Takeover
This week we were joined on the Army Cadets Instagram feed by W01 Gavin Paton and what a great takeover it was. Next week (2 June) we’re going to be joined by the Intelligence Corps who are celebrating their 80thBirthday this year. Get your questions ready and see you at 19.00 on Tuesday!
Army Cadet Digi-magazine
In case you hadn’t seen it, the second edition of the digital Army Cadet Magazine is out this week. It’s packed full of really interesting features, including how to deal with Hyperthermia by Ambassador and Polar Explorer Craig Mathieson, an interview with the first female to command a troop of 70 Gurkhas and lot’s more. We hope you enjoy it.
Angus and Dundee Battalion held their first Senior Cadet virtual meeting this week and sounds like they had a great time. Check at their post and photo here.

Tonight the battalion held its first senior cadet virtual meeting. Col Marshall welcomed everyone plus @DepCom_AD_ACF , RSM & Coy Commanders. Plenty of discussion & some great ideas. #VirtualACF #keeptheflamealive @ArmyCadetsScot @ColCdts51X @CTCFrimleyPark pic.twitter.com/uN0HhPuiHx
Cadet Kyle McBride
This week we heard about new Cadet Kyle McBride from Merseyside ACF, whose acts of kindness have really helped those in his community. Kyle had only collected his uniform just before lockdown, but wasted no time in demonstrating how great our cadets can be. Well done Cadet McBride!
So pleased to hear today about the actions of a Cadet in @MerseysideACF who has become a local hero sourcing and distributing with his parents food, electrical and household goods to local people who need some help. Well done to him, more in my update this week. @ColCadetsHQNW pic.twitter.com/dkUTdEF2kQ— @acfcolcadets #Keeptheflamealive (@ACFColCadets) May 26, 2020
