Army Cadets from Somerset and Bristol complete 50 miles in two days


Two teams from Somerset and Bristol Army Cadets have worked together to complete the gruelling 50 mile RAF WARMA march at RAF Cosford.

The RAF WARMA two day march is a gruelling annual marching event that consists of a 50 mile march over the course of two days, through countryside around RAF Cosford in Staffordshire. The Cadets took on the event in challenging conditions due to the tail-end of Storm Hannah.

The Somerset team was awarded best Army Cadet team by Air Commodore Dawn McCafferty, Commandant RAF Air Cadets.

The ultimate goal for a number of the Cadets who took part is to go on to take part in the 103rd 4 Daagse or International Four Days Marches in Nijmegen, Holland, which takes place 16-19 July.

Congratulations to all those cadets who took part, and good luck to all those who are going to Nijmegen!
