Harrow Army cadets return from two week training camp
Army cadets from the borough have been awarded for their hard work at an annual summer training camp.
Cadets from 201 Harrow ACF (Royal Army Medical Corps) were among 600 who returned home from their two-week training camp at Crowborough in Sussex last week.
Cadet Corporal Alan Ashby of Sudbury completed the senior cadet instructors course, run by Regular Army staff.
The 17-year-old said: “It’s been an amazing course and quite an experience. What I’ve learned most from this course is how to bite my tongue when times get hard, that way I feel that I can work better under pressure.”
Other activities the young recruits took part in included obstacle courses, clay target shooting, high ropes training, first aid and paintball.
Colonel Mark Hodson TD, Commandant of the Middlesex and North West London Army Cadet Force said: “Our cadets from Middlesex and North West London ACF have engaged very positively in the training opportunities which have been presented to them.
“Each and every one will have grown personally as a result of what they have achieved.”
