Nijmegen Training begins!

Recently Corporal Kearsley and Civilian Instructor Sohal attended the annual Nijmegen training days.

First of all we watched a video on what our week at Nijmegen would entail and had a foot care talk, something to vitally important to understand for long walks such as the practice and the 25 miles a day that Nijmegen consists of.

The walk started at Glenfield Squadron and was 15 miles around the surrounding areas, finish off where we started. In total there were around 30 cadets attending this first training walk, the group was dividing into two separate teams. Once on the walk it was great to meet other cadets from different squadrons and get to know them.

All in all it was a good day and I cannot wait until the long awaited Nijmegen 2014.
