Seven March-based cadets have completed an expedition across the North York Moors as part of their Silver Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
The air cadets from the 1220 March Squadron began their three-day journey near Castleton in the North York Moors.
They travelled through Westerdale and Farndale Moors before completing the ‘expedition’ section of their Silver Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
Chris Howsam, cadet aged 15, said: “The expedition was really worthwhile and I am pleased to have completed this section of the award.”
After camping in the valley on the first night, the cadets second day saw them pass disused mines in the area before camping in Rosedale.
