ON THURSDAY 8TH MARCH IN BRIGHT SUNNY CONDITIONS IT WAS THE INTER HOUSE DRILL AND TURNOUT COMPETITION.
In the build up to the competition all the houses had put in many hours of practice, sometimes in in very testing weather conditions. In addition to practising their foot drill, the teams worked hard on preparing their uniform for the inspection phase. The cadets were inspected by Sgt Ray Cooper, from the RAF, and as a RAF Drill Instructor, he was meticulous in his inspection.
After the inspection the teams then moved onto the drill phase, which watched by a large crowd was a real test of teamwork. The foot drill was marked by Maj Tim Moore from 160th Infantry BrigadeHeadquarters in Brecon, a former Garrison Sergeant Major, and COH Moses, from the Brigade Cadet Training Team. After all the houses had competed, the cadets formed up outside the CCF store, under the Christ College CCF RSM to hear the results.
This year’s winners, and retaining the trophy that they have won for the last two years were de Winton, followed closely by Orchard in 2nd and Donaldson’s in 3rd. The best Commander prize was given to Cdt Cronin, from de Winton. All the houses must be complemented on their efforts.
