Trinity News : July 2010
The annual March Bivouac was held at Holsworthy Military Range “H” Sector on March 18th-20th when the cadets “went bush” to put into practice lessons taught in classes during the weekly School parades as preparation for AFT later in the year during Activities Week. For many recruits this was their frst time in the bush, and they learned very quickly that it was up to themselves to make their lives comfortable! No Mum or Dad to do things for them! The recruits handled things well, and managed their tasks with enthusiasm, whether setting up their hutchies, using the ration packs wisely, and participating fully in the various exercises. The older cadets were able to further hone these skills, while the lads appointed as corporals, sergeants or CUOs demonstrated admirable leadership in their frst feld training phase in their new postings, running interesting and challenging training activities for the cadets. The Bivoauc demanded much logistically – rations, sanitation, water supply, accommodation, transport – and we thank the Offcers of Cadets who organised the bivouac so that it was able to run smoothly. Cadets, perhaps more than any other group in the School, encourages the ethos of servant leadership, upon which Trinity prides itself, and the March Bivouac plays a signifcant part in achieving this aim. | Ron Ogier 1 this group of cadets about to set out on a navigation exercise 2 CUOs prepare a ‘mud map’ from bush materials for later use in a navigation lesson 3 CUO Nathan Dimarchos (12Du) prepares a ‘chuffa’ a device made from a 4 gallon drum, which enables water to be heated on a campfre 4 Unfortunately the Army didn’t supply enough hutchies for the Unit, so some civilian tents had to be used.
