Reserve Forces & Cadets Association
Northern Ireland



15 April 2019

Reserves and cadets from Northern Ireland can be extremely proud of their achievement in completing their latest training phase ahead of the 2019 Nijmegen Marches in the Netherlands.

Air Cadets from Northern Ireland Wing and reservists from 253 (North Irish) Medical Regiment, 204 (North Irish) Field Hospital and Queens UOTC were amongst the participants who took part in the two day training regime. 

The Nijmegen Marches have long been recognised as an excellent training event, in which teams have to exhibit a variety of military competences, including leadership, man-management and teamwork, together with physical and mental ability. In addition, the British Military are rightly held in high esteem by the military staffs of the other participating nations. Participants are required to march approximately 40km over different routes on each of the four marching days. On completion of the 4 days all participants get to take part in the traditional end of competition march past.

We look forward to catching up with the cadets and reserves again to see how their journey of discovery develops over the coming months!
