Cadets train at naval headquarters

Four cadets from CLSG attended a two day training course at HMS Excellent in Portsmouth on the 5th and 6th February.

The group stayed on-board HMS Bristol, a type 82 Destroyer, and attended Fire Fighting and Damage Control simulation training. This was done in conjunction with CLS Boys' CCF

Cadet Morris said: "Both the fire fighting school and the damage repair unit were fun, interactive activities and it helped us to work on skills like initiative and teamwork. It also gave us valuable information about the differences between fire extinguishers and how they should be used properly.

"Although the idea of being closed in a flooding room and having to repair the damage didn't sound particularly appealing, the damage repair unit also taught us a lot about preventing flood damage and thinking outside the box. All in all it was a great trip."
