Kinn'ell... I've just spent this evening explaining to a 15 YO lad the principles of Drill Instruction, ie; Dem, exp, imit & practice. As well as Precautionary & Executive orders etc etc. Followed by guiding him through the process of teaching 'Off-Caps' with a group of new cadets and how to apply 'Power of Command' This to make sure he's ready for his LH board in Aug. Whilst this was happening I was legging back & forth to another group of kids making sure they knew how to carry out duties of a QM. En-route, the booties needed some tips on 'Marksmanship Principles' and the NAFFI team then wanted help with Stand-Easy. So what am I on with here? Basically, its a long shot, and a call for help from any of you ex's out there (or even serving) in the Barnsley region who might be willing to give up a few hours a week to help these kids in the Sea Cadets in the art of becoming a matelot, or a bootneck. This unit has been trickle-feeding the RN/RM since 1942 and and intends to carry on doing this throughout this century. All pm's welcome from Barnsley area.
