Two glorious days of sunshine provided the backdrop to the RHS CCF field days at the end of the summer term.
The Royal Navy section were afloat on the School’s fleet of four Cornish Shrimpers and they also visited Chatham Historic Dockyard and conducted training in the local area. The RAF section visited RAF Hendon museum and took part in range work, laser quest tactical exercises and command and leadership training.
The Royal Marines and Army sections deployed to Stanford Training Area near Thetford for some intensive tactical training involving an overnight ambush. The arrival of a troop of Light Dragoons from Swanton Morley, caused much excitement on the second day. They were taking a break from their current operational training and the RHS cadets were able to clamber over four of their Jackal armoured fighting vehicles and in one of their Panther Command and Liaison Vehicles. The Squadron Commander was pleased to give the pupils an insight into the role and capability of the Light Dragoons.
