It’s not just the cadets who are proud

The presentation of a Four Star award is always an important event both for the cadet and for the detachment.  However at Coalburn last night the presentations took on a particular significance for Lt Chris Peacock, now a Battalion Assistant Training Officer, because the two girls involved were his first recruits when he had just been appointed a Detachment Commander at 5 Pl RSB, five years ago.

Our pictures show Cpl Abbie Kirkwood and Sgt Rachel Mason after being presented with their Four Star badges and a look back to the time when they were being used as causalities for a First Aid lesson.

The cadets successfully completed the SCIC last week to add to the Expedition Training qualification gained during Annual Camp and now have their sights firmly set on achieving Master Cadet.
