Trinity News : November 2008
AFT The Annual Field Training (AFT) was held this year at Singleton, in excellent weather, which contrasted dramatically with that of last year! The week was packed with visits to the Infantry Museum, examination of several Australian Light Armoured Vehicles and two Bushmasters, by courtesy 2 Calvary Regiment (a real favourite this one was as the soldiers allowed the Cadets to inspect the vehicles closely!) while the Year 12 CUOs and Pioneers Coy visited the Weapons Training Simulation System at Singleton Barracks. The high point of the week was the tremendously well run Exercise Eclipse, wherein Coys A and D pitted their wits against Coys B and C. The Cadets involved gained much experience in sentry duties, radio work, patrolling, and camouflage and concealment techniques. After a keen contest, A and D “super company” triumphed narrowly over B and C Coys. The magnificent weather, coupled with the excellent organisation by the outgoing Year 12s, justifiably allows us to say this was the best AFT for many years — one which will provide the cadets involved with many great memories. Both Cadets and Staff worked together to achieve a tremendous climax to another successful training year! | Tim Barden and Ron Ogier clockwise from top: 1 Two ASLAVs completely camouflaged by Cadets of Delta Coy under the command of CUO Giddy 2 The WTSS presented the CUOs with the opportunity of experiencing via laser rifles the virtual shooting range 3 Always a most important part of the Cadet Field Training is communications via Signals.
