‘‘Activities include drills, map reading, bush craft techniques, field engineering and first aid.

‘‘We also have weekend trips and an annual camping trip in September to Puckapunyal (army base),’’ he said.

Anyone wanting to be involved in cadets is welcome to turn up to Thursday night meetings at the Deniliquin RSL Sports Complex from 7pm.
