Army cadets from Kent have been living the adventure during the 150th anniversary of the birth of the Cadet Movement.

Five hundred cadets and their instructors spent their two-week annual camp on Salisbury Plain, where they tried their hand at scuba diving, kayaking, and rock climbing, with overnight exercises in the field.

Several VIP visitors came to see them in action, including the High Sheriff of Kent, Peregrine Massey, Col David McDine DL, Col Richard Dixon DL and KCC Councillor Leyland Ridings. The Vice Lord Lieutenant of Kent, the Viscount De LIsle, Honorary Colonel of Kent ACF, also joined the guests and Col Robert Murfin, Commandant of Kent Army Cadet Force, made a number of presentations to both cadets and adults.
