Army Cadet Force Battlefield Tour & Armistice Commemoration

Agreed.

 

I retract my suggestion that there was a terrible rate of attrition under GD's stewardship. In fact, i'm sure that the survival rate was actually very high indeed.

 

Looks like a good show all round.

I am back out later this week but with a school rather than cadets.  And only 1 coach, not 20.

Me too. I have a school group Thursday to Saturday.

 

You always look too busy to say hello to, Gareth. Perhaps I should just trip you up as you stride past purposefully! :lol:

I am never to busy to say hello to chums Ken.  There is however the slight problem that, never having met you, I don't know what you look like!

Then I have a distinct advantage! I'll introduce myself next time our paths cross.

It was advertised as being ACF and CCF, but only the ACF actually seems to have been involved - were both there?

Yes. It was predominantly ACF but a few CCFs came along.

I don't remember it being advertised to us, sadly.

It was well advertised throughout the Cadet world.
