Sandy Cadet Complete Bronze Expedition

Air Cadets from 22 (Sandy) Squadron recently complete their final Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Expeditions, along with 2065 (Biggleswade) Squadron, walking over two days through Bedfordshire.

Starting on Saturday 29th September, the cadets set off in three teams, navigating their way to the campsite. Throughout the day the cadets kept each other’s moral high, with a little help with some sweets, and games along the route, such as eye spy.

At the campsite the cadets set up camp, cooking dinner in their teams and relaxing before their final day of walking. In the morning the cadets packed up camp after breakfast and headed for the finish.

At the end of the weekend the cadets felt like they had achieved something special, after being totally self-sufficient for the two days and working together in their teams.

Cadet Corporal William Clubb (15) said “It was a challenging weekend that required a lot of effort, but was well worth it, and I’m very much looking forward to doing the Silver expedition”.

For a number of the cadets the expedition marks the completion of their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, which comprises four sections, including the expedition.
