JUNIOR LEADERS FIELD GUN COMPETITION

JUNIOR LEADERS FIELD GUN COMPETITION

11/07/2017

Cadets and volunteers did themselves proud at this year's Junior Leaders Field Gun competition.

Team Sea Cadets came up against older competitors, but comfortably finished in the top half of the 17-strong field.

The Royal Navy-organised contest, which took place on Friday 7 July, is designed for 16- to 24-year-olds who have no or little previous field gun experience, with teams competing to build and transport a field gun and its equipment up and down an 85-yard track. They stop to complete actions along the way, with the aim of running home with a clean and fast time. 

This year's event took place at HMS Collingwood in Fareham, Hampshire, with teams coming together in the week leading up to the event to practise and hone their routine.
