There was silver success for a team of cadets as they competed in an annual contest.

Team Suffolk took part in the East of England Combat Cadet 2018, a prestigious competition that sees cadets from the region congregate at the Stanta training area in Norfolk and battle it out over a 48-hour period.

With teams having prepared at Bodney camp on Friday, March 30, they spent the ensuing weekend conducting various field craft exercises at the facility's mock village, including first aid, patrolling, leadership and team building.

The cadet training team from the 7th infantry Brigade scored the teams as they completed each task, before the grand finale on Sunday where the competitors conducted building clearances.
