On the 16th of February Cdt Cavallo, Cdt Burgess and Sgt White got awarded Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards at various levels, at the Squadron by Wing Adventure technical Training Officer CI Sinclair. They are a few of the large group of Horsham cadets working towards this qualification, one of the awards you can earn with the Air Cadets. As part of the continuous Duke of Edinburgh’s training scheme at the Squadron, on the 16th of march, Duke of Edinburgh’s assessor and Gold DofE holder, Fg Off Foster, came down to the squadron to train cadets how to erect tents and held map skills competitions, making for a very enjoyable evening. The week before, cadets also got taught by Cotswold Outdoor’s staff on what equipment you need for your DofE expedition, and how to pack bags and other skills, so even more cadets are ready to take their DofE expedition this year.
If you too are interested in taking your DofE, and a range of other exciting activities why not take a look at our Join Us page, to see how you too can become an Air Cadet?
