10:00am Saturday 31st July 2010 - 4:00pm Saturday 31st July 2010 at Leeds in the Armouries Square

2010 marks 150 years since the Cadet movement first started, when the Cadet Corps was formed to help bolster the country’s defence numbers following heavy losses in the Crimean War.

Today’s Cadet Forces are quite different organisations, having evolved into unique voluntary youth organisations, offering young people opportunities to develop themselves, try new adventures and activities, and learn key lessons in citizenship and the importance of society.

C Company, Corp of Drums, Army Cadet Force will be celebrating this momentous anniversary with a day of fun and challenging activities for all the family to try, as well as demonstrations of military skills.
