Cadets from Old Swinford Hospital CCF and Oldbury Detachment ACF attended an Army Insight evening at Oldbury Army Reserve Centre.
Soldiers from 225 Field Squadron Royal Monmouthshire Royal Engineers (Militia) demonstrated some of their techniques and equipment that they use for Military Engineering tasks. Cadets were also involved in a scenario which required them to evacuate an injured soldier from an RTC. They had to apply first aid techniques learnt from the unit’s Combat Medical Technician Cpl Clarke, who is also an NHS Paramedic.
The main aim of the evening was to encourage Cadets to think about Regular or Reserve service once they leave the Cadets.
