The fourth Inter-House drill and turnout competition took place in glorious spring sunshine on Thursday 19th March. With all houses practicing hard for the last few weeks it was predicted that this year’s competition was going to be the closest yet.
As the teams paraded for the uniform inspection it was clear that the houses had come together to polish, iron and brush uniforms to an extremely high standard. The inspecting officer, Major Pete McCellan, OC of the Welsh Cadet Training Team, was extremely strict with marks being deducted for the smallest fault.
The drill phase included turnings at the halt, as well as marching in slow and quick time, with the squad commanders shouting the words of command crisply.
With anticipation building, the whole contingent paraded ready for the final results to be announced. Cdt Jack Stephens (St David’s House) was identified as the smartest cadet on parade. Cdt Cpl Catie Masters (De Winton) received the prize for best Team Commander, and St David’s House were crowned the 2014/15 Drill and Turnout Champions, meaning that School House lost their crown as winners of the three previous competitions. De Winton were a close second, with School House in third place, Donaldson’s in fourth and Orchard House fifth. Well done to all who attended the nightly house practice sessions and made such an effort to ensure that their house came together as a team with pride in their houses and cadet responsibilities on display for all to see.
