After a further round of shooting 7 of the team were in the top 100 of the whole competition and have been awarded the coveted Cadet 100 badge 2016/7 to wear on their uniform.
4 of the team entered last year and this was the first year for the remainder of the squad.
2 Cadets, CSM Kelly and Cpl Egereva, shot well enough to be selected for the ACF l team to shoot in the Junior Inter-Services Small-bore match, The Whistler Trophy and have been awarded their National Colours.
LCpl A Egereva of 9 Platoon Caversham is to be commended to achieving second place in the overall Cadet 100 competition for the second year running.
