Two groups of air cadets from 1220 (March) Squadron Air Training Corps completed a two day expedition through Norfolk as part of their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s award.
The air cadets, aged 14, were self sufficient throughout, carrying their own food, supplies and tents.
On day one, the teams walked from Whissonsett to the campsite at Coxford.
The second day involved a walk through a series of villages, ending in Little Massingham.
After completing his expedition, cadet Joshua Birchnall said: “Physically and mentally challenging it was the best Duke of Edinburgh experience I’ve had yet.
