Cadet Challenge

His Excellency visited the Cadet Challenge which is now in its fourth year, the challenge saw members of the Jersey Sea Cadets, Victoria College Combined Cadet Forces, the Jersey Army Cadets and the Jersey Air Training Corps compete against each other for the Newton and Newton Shield. Last year’s overall winners, the Jersey Air Training Corps, defended their position taking home the shield, as well as winning the best male group trophy.

An all-girl team from the Jersey Air Training Corps won the best female team and the Royal Marine Cadets, part of the Jersey Sea Cadets, went home with trophy for the best mixed team.

His Excellency watched the cadets as they undertook rigorous challenges, taking part in a drill, a shooting completion and a formal inspection by His Excellency.
