Joseph explains what the event involved.
“I joined the Cadets five years ago and became a member of the Corps of Drums just before Easter. I play the piccolo. We were invited to take part in a major tattoo in Malta. We paraded through a small town before joining lots of other marching bands in a stadium. There were two other bands from England, but we were the only cadets.”
Joseph explained what is involved in being a cadet (when not being part of a marching band!). “We study seven subjects: Military Knowledge, Skill at Arms, First Aid, Field Craft, Maps and Compass, Drill and PT. I was a scout first of all, and was very keen to move up to be a cadet. I would like to be an adult instructor in the future.”
Joseph is studying A levels in Maths, Physics, Psychology and AS General Studies. “I want to study Physics at university and am applying to the Army for a scholarship.”
