Student Luke Beale has been presented with a trophy for Best Army Cadet at the two Corby detachments. Luke has been attending the Alexandra and Corby III detachments for about a year and, at the end of year dinner Luke was surprised to be presented with the award.
He said: ‘They said I was the best cadet and liked my ironed uniform and polished boots. I joined because I thought it would be a bit of fun. We do lots of activities including rifle shooting, first aid and fitness drills. I was a bit surprised when I got the trophy. I have also recently got a medal for taking part in a cross country race with the cadets at Yardley Chase. I am considering joining the Army as a career and am looking at going into the REME (Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers) or Royal Logistics Corps.’
