Four Fenland air cadets’ shooting skills were tested when they took part in a national marksmanship competition.

Sergeant Scott Goodall, Corporal Chanel Ogden, Corporal Aleks Deaves and Corporal Joe Williams, of 1220 (March) Squadron Air Cadets, competed at the Cadet Inter-Services Skill at Arms Meeting (CISSAM) 2013.

The three-day event, held at Pirbright Ranges, tested the cadets’ marksmanship skill, physical ability and safety drills.

Cadet Flight Sergeant Katie Dickson assisted with the team’s logistics and Corporal Matthew Ward hauled the large target boards up and down.

Cpl Williams said: “It was so exciting – we won the first round, but unfortunately didn’t make the third round. We’ll do better next year.”
