Acadmy CCF Unit Takes Part in Army Issued Rifles and Pistols Workshop

On Wednesday 3rd April the Academy CCF unit were fortunate enough to be joined by a Major and a Sergeant from Local Army Unit: Princess of Wales Royal Regiment (PWRR).
With them they brought some Army Issued Rifles and Pistols, with a variety of Sight Systems. The Cadets were extremely excited as they got to learn more about these weapons and equipment. The Cadets were really engaged and thoroughly enjoyed this new experience.
One cadet even asked if we could buy one the Sight Systems, unfortunately at over £5000 we told the cadet that it would not be a good idea. Thank you to all staff that were supportive of this new experience, the Major said he looks forward to coming back and doing a different talk (maybe a demonstration on the new Army fitness test).
