Army Cadets made the most out of their school holidays when they visited West Down Army Training Camp.

The camp, on Salisbury Plain, was the home of three city teenagers for two weeks between July 27 and August 10.

Sergeant Liam Clark, Lance Corporal Callum Samuels and Ben Hersant, all 17, took part in activities including field craft training, first aid, navigation, shooting, adventure training and canoeing.

Liam, from Wolverton, has been a cadet for five years and is joining the army in October.

He said: “Annual camp is always great, we meet lots of other cadets from all across Buckinghamshire and have a really good time. It is quite hard work as well, definitely not boring.”
