Enjoying the challenge

THE Henley detachment of the Army Cadet Force recently returned from a successful two-week camp in at Swynnerton in Staffordshire.

Cadets were tested on the skills they have learnt throughout the year, culminating in a  300-strong cadet battalion exercise.

The Henley cadets were put through their paces with activities such as paddle boarding, an obstacle course and clay pigeon shooting.

The detachment was awarded with the best detachment administration trophy and was nominated for the padre’s trophy for the most charitable work done by a single unit.

Detachment Commander 2nd Lt Thomas Fearn was awarded the most outstanding progress made through the year.



The Army Cadet Force is a national youth organisation for 12- to 18-year-olds sponsored and supported by the Ministry of Defence. It provides a challenging and varied syllabus based on military themes.

The Henley Army Cadets parade at the Drill Hall in Friday Street every Wednesday from 7pm to 9.30pm and are currently looking for new cadets and adult volunteers.

For enquiries, please send an email to detachment commander 2nd Lt Thomas Fearn at 3875fear@armymail.mod.uk
