Adult instructor and Cadet Officer Captain Mike Doyle is one of the members of staff, taking part in the Berkshire Army Cadet Force Annual Camp this year held in Thetford.
Mike, who works full time for the Army Cadet Force on a national basis, went to Durham University and has a degree in Maths. He also enjoys being a member of the Army Cadet Force in his spare time and as an ex Cadet himself he believes that being a Cadet can offer youngsters some amazing opportunities, “During Camp the Cadets will be able to take part in Military training, including drill and field craft, and a wide range of Adventure Training – better than sitting at home being bored!”
“Being a Cadet helped me as a teenager, and now as an instructor I am giving something back, teaching life skills, and I enjoy it.”
