Guernsey Cadet Force Training Camp

About 40 young people camped at Rue Mainguy and trained at the Scout site and L'Ancresse Common culminating in an evening ambush exercise on Saturday night, giving the cadets a chance to put their skills into practise.

UK army personnel had travelled over specially for the event which included marine cadets and the air training corps alongside the army cadets. 

The Lieutenant-Governor brushed off his army fatigues and went down to join them on Saturday morning, having the opportunity to look around the camp and talk to many of the cadets. Having served in the army for more than 40 years, he was impressed with the dedication the cadets gave to their skills and to the self-discipline and people skills so necessary in the modern army. 

One of the cadets is already well known to His Excellency as Sergeant Lillie-May Hawkins is one of his Lieutenant-Governor's Cadets this year. Lillie-May has been an army cadet for 5 years and is the first of the ACF to have been chosen as an L-G Cadet and the first to have been put forward. An asset to their unit and to the Government House team.
