(Friday 10 November 2017)
Sergeant Instructor Tabitha Cook from Clwyd and Gwynedd Army Cadet Force (ACF), Burma Company, had a Remembrance weekend to remember when she was given the opportunity to parade with the Fishguard Detachment of Dyfed and Glamorgan ACF.
32 Cadets from across Wales spent their half term in France for Exercise Dragon Reflect, a unique battlefield study at sites of the First World War.
Cadets have once again excelled at this year’s Army Cadet Force (ACF) Welsh winter sports event. It was held at Myddelton College in Denbigh and promoted sports within the regions, also encouraging friendly inter-county rivalry and good sportsmanship.
