Scots Cadets Take Their First Steps

Published on 08/12/2018

Some of the newest cadets in the VCC took their first steps towards passing out as Royal Marines Cadets in early December when they embarked on their first weekend exercise.  Ex First Steps is designed to teach the cadets the basic skills of camp craft and field craft, and involves a night under the stars and living off rations.  Even the chilly Scottish autumn couldn’t dampen the cadets’ spirits as they got stuck into their training.  The cadets ‘pass out’ for duty in January.
