On Wednesday 6th May, the Combined Cadet Force Biennial inspection took place in the grounds of Christ College Brecon. Over 130 cadets paraded outside the chapel in challenging weather conditions, in front of the Regimental Colonel of the Royal Welsh Regiment and former Commander of 160th (Wales) Brigade, Brigadier Phillip Napier OBE.
The Brigadier and Head of Christ College, Mrs Emma Taylor were welcomed with a General Salute, crisply executed by the Guard of Honour and Colour party, under the command of the school RSM, Cadet WO1 Rhodri Edwards. The Brigadier inspected four divisions of Army section cadets, and two flights of RAF cadets.

These stands were overseen and introduced to the Brigadier by senior cadets, and ranged from .22 shooting to leadership tasks, weapon training, first aid and field craft.The final display was a demonstration of foot drill by this year’s winning House Drill team, St David’s House.
