Cadet’s from the Wing were recently invited to 967 Squadron for a day of weapons training. The day included training on the L98A2 Cadet GP rifle and the Lee Enfield No 8. Carrying out this training and passing the associated Weapons Handling Test is a pre-requisite for any Cadet to fire a weapon, so having this training on the Squadron was an excellent opportunity.
It was an intensive but enjoyable day and despite being October the weather was good enough to allow some of the training to take place outside.
Live firing and further training days take place throughout the year and dates can be found on the Squadron calendar. For more information Cadets should speak to a member of Squadron staff.
