CCF Field Weekend

“The three main aims of the CCF are leadership, teamwork and camaraderie. The military scenario devised for them on Field Weekend provided the perfect environment to meet these aims.  The army section arrived on RAF Barnham’s training area in glorious sunshine ready for Exercise ‘Lion’s Claw’ with the mission of ridding the area of troublesome rebel forces.  A platoon harbour was established in a heavily fortified bomb dump complex.  Throughout the day their ambush and anti-ambush skills were tested to the full as the initiative swayed back and forth. A dawn attack by the enemy was immediately countered and three assaults on insurgent positions saw the army section gaining the upper hand and the eventual discovery of the location of the enemy base. The army section were shocked to discover that their Headmaster, Mr Paul Taylor had joined the rebel band. By the time the army section arrived at the enemy base an IED had destroyed the retreating enemy convoy. Casualty evacuation drills were well-executed and the remaining rebels surrendered or were swiftly dealt with. Mr Taylor was never found, but a black BMW was seen leaving the area at speed.”

Lt Colonel M K Myers-Allen
