On Sunday 9th March, cadets from 422 (Corby) Squadron and 1101 (Kettering) Squadron donned their walking gear to take part in a Day Walk in preparation for their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Award.
The cadets were split into three teams and given a map, compass and route card for the 13.8km route they would be walking.
The route started at the Squadron Headquarters, taking them through to Stanion, Brigstock, Weldon and then back to the Squadron Headquarters in St. Marks Road, Corby.

The weather remained bright and sunny throughout the course of the day and cadets were able to put into practice all the theory they had learned in the classroom.
Civilian Instructor David McArthur, 422 Squadron said, “The teams have worked really well today and we can already see some great potential in the teams going forward for their Bronze DofE”.
