CCF Year 9 Field Weekend

CCF Year 9

The new Year 9 CCF recruits spent the weekend down at Okehampton Camp for a Field Weekend, during which time the group were given an introduction to some of the skills that are taught throughout their first year of CCF.

During a very busy weekend, as well getting a good overview of camp life, the group was given introduction to, and training for, the L98 and No8 Rifle systems, improvisation on shelter building, field equipment and packing, introduction into the 24-hour single person rations plus safety using the one man stoves and basic foot drill.

The year 9 group worked extremely well and had a great weekend. Just as importantly, they looked very smart in their new Multi Pattern Uniform displaying the West Buckland School logo!
