Sirius CCF 30th - 31st March Field Weekend

Posted: 03rd April 2019 in News

The cadets of Sirius CCF were blessed with a weekend of fine weather for their Field Weekend, which saw 13 of the contingent training in Strensall, York.  A varied programme was delivered by excellent staff from 4 Infantry Brigade Cadet Training Team.  The two days of activities included the Dismounted Close Combat Trainer (DCCT) - a large realistic Xbox which shows targets of 100metres and 200metres on a screen, an afternoon of paint balling, patrolling at night, tactics and skills associated with living in the field.

The weekend has given the cadets a wonderful opportunity to develop their leadership qualities, communication skills and self confidence. Some great characters and some memorable moments and I would like to thank them all for making the weekend a very enjoyable one.

Cadets attending:  SAN - Gabija Giedryte, Bruno Pomerncis and Tegan Watson Freeman. SAW - Katie May Barker, Joseph Braithwaite, Leon Casey, Spencer Edwards,Taylor Hutchinson, Cameron Sheppard, Kian Simpson, Jenson Smith, Leo Solarczyk and Dylan Wilkinson.
