CCF Summer Field Weekend

CCF Grammar training weekend CCF

Junior Company deployed to the Swynnerton Training area, Staffordshire, for their annual Summer Field Weekend on  7th/8th May 2011. For many, this would have been their first experience of sleeping out under the stars. However, torrential rain, thunder and lightning meant that bashas were abandoned in favour of an old bunker complex! The following morning, after ration-pack breakfast, the platoons began their rotation of four activity stands: obstacle course, orienteering, dismounted close combat trainer and a casualty evacuation scenario in an urban environment. After a short downpour early on, the weather improved and the sun shone once again on a very successful weekend. Well done to all who participated!
