Cadets host open night

The Oban Times - - News -

THE 1st Bat­tal­ion The High­landers Army Cadet Force, Fort Wil­liam, opened its doors to rel­a­tives and friends re­cently to demon­strate the range of ac­tiv­i­ties they en­joy.

The cadets showed off shoot­ing in their ded­i­cated range, putting up tents to build a camp, first aid, march­ing and cook­ing. The many tro­phies and awards they have won over the past year were also on show.

In the mid­dle of July the cadets head off to an­nual camp, which this year takes place at Bar­ry­bud­den near Dundee, where they will sharpen their skills in a num­ber of mil­i­tary-based com­pe­ti­tions against other cadets from across Scot­land.
