skills challenge week at osr scouts and a visit from lt col to cover drill and talk about military 17/01/18
This week we were visited by Mark a Lt Col from the REME who explained about his Army career and had lots of equipment for the scouts to try on etc. We also had Ironing, sewing and shoe cleaning/ polishing. The evening was finished off with some drill practise, everyone seemed to be having fun either trying to put up the mosquito tent, carry the 40kg rucksack or trying on the kit Mark is expected to wear when out in the field, someone also tried on the S12 respirator. Big ty to Mark for giving up his evening to show the scouts what being in HM Forces is like.
