1921 cadets joined the first London Wing Shoot of 2010, with the opportunity to fire the new Cadet Rifle drawing the attention of the Squadronâ€™s top shots.
The new rifle has been rolled out across the Corps over the course of the year, and this is Londonâ€™s first chance to get involved with training and competition on the new platform. But the changes are more than just technical issues, as Sgt Pat Adams explained:
â€œThe new rifle takes a little getting used to, but offers huge potential for improving cadet shooting. Cadets can concentrate on their accuracy and consistency, rather than having to change position each time they shoot.â€
Proving this quite effectively, Cdt Lewis achieved his first marksmanship award during the shoot; together with the other cadets who effectively requalified on the rifle during the day. Our thanks to Flt Lt Ibbitson and his team for an excellent shoot. Letâ€™s hope for similar success as we continue through the year!
