I entered a discomfort zone

I had been looking forward to yesterday for a while as it was the first day since the surgery that I was going out to do some photography. Every year Cambridgeshire Army Cadet Force has the recruiting trailer at the Army Careers Exhibition held at the Army Training Regiment Bassingbourn (ATR(B)). I missed last year’s […]

A rare outing

After my whinge yesterday about being a caged animal I finally managed to get out of the house today, it was only for a couple of hours but that was fine by me. Cambridgeshire Army Cadet Force have recently appointed a new PRO (Public Relations Officer). He had attended the Introduction to PR Course this […]
