Following yet another fantastic week of Remembrance assemblies delivered by Major Graeme Herron and Captain Alex Hendry of the Fusilier’s Association, our cadets delivered an assembly of their own at Hylton Castle Primary School. Eight of the cadets went along to speak to all years about the importance of Remembrance and what it was like to be a cadet at this time of year. On Remembrance Sunday we attended the parade and service at Hexham and were fortunate enough to march with the Hexham Detachment of Army Cadet Force; like us they too are Fusiliers. The cadets behaviour and performance was absolutely first rate; especially impressive given that some of them were so new to the CCF that they only received their uniforms that morning. It was particularly pleasing to see how well all of the cadets had bonded as a team in such a short period of time and the standard of drill was testament to how hard they all work for the cadet Lance Corporals.
