I was hoping to be in the Squadrons shooting team for Wing Field day this and my Squadron CO has told me that i defiantly am now.’
The cadets were trained by the Squadrons new Weapons Instructor and Range Conducting Officer Sgt Ben Walden ATC ‘i was always interested in Target shooting as a young cadet myself. I had to attended several courses to be able to teach and instruct our cadets on how to safely operate the rifles and feel a real sense of achievement and pride that so many of our cadets are now achieving in this’.
