Cadets from Henley Detachment, Oxfordshire Army Cadet Force (ACF) have been busy making poppies for a remembrance display at their County Headquarters in Bicester. The Cadets received a virtual tutorial on how to make a garden poppy from the County Training Officer Major Paul Rodwell, using the bottom of a plastic drink bottle, red spray paint, a black marker pen and green garden cane.
Cadets from Henley have been researching their family tree and local heroes who served in the Armed Forces, and will be presenting their findings on Wednesday 11 November to their fellow cadets via a virtual parade night.
Along with their research, the Cadets from Henley Detachment have also entered into a detachment competition. Cadets will upload a photo of themself in their smartly ironed uniform and polished boots during their two-minute silence on Sunday. The smartest turned out cadets will win a Regimental Rifles Stable Belt.
Even though we are unable to parade in person, We Will Remember Them.
