Spaldings Bakers Dozen Bake in Bakewell

Thirteen cadets and 5 staff  from 1406 (Spalding) Squadron made the most of the good weather at the weekend when they practiced their navigation, camp craft and expedition skills in view of the beautiful Derbyshire Town of Bakewell.

Cadets were tasked with various navigation tasks that included accurate measuring if distance, compass and map bearings, Identifying land marks, and what to do in emergencies. Also taught and put into practice over the weekend were their cooking skills, with some menus not for the faint hearted!

The cadets will now go on to complete their practice and assessed Expeditions later this year, and hoping for more of the same weather.

Squadron Warrant Officer Chris Bone, “Its nice to see the cadets enjoying the weather, and learning some practical skills ready for the next stage,” with a smile on his face and with tongue in cheek, he then went on to tell them all “that this is not the weather to expect every
time they go away, even in the height of summer, in fact its almost unheard of.”
