Three members of the Army Cadet Force (ACF) from Minden Company, Lothian and Borders Battalion, have been recognised for their skills.
Cadet corporals Shannon Atkinson, from Hawick, Aaron Millar, Eyemouth, and Steven Rattray, Melrose, passed the ACF level of Three Star at a course held at Drumshoreland Weekend Training Centre near Broxburn.
During their time in the ACF, cadets learn skills, from map reading and navigation through being able to survive living “in the field” to working together as a team. Progress in these type of skills is recognised through a Star system. To reach the level of Three Star, cadets also have to demonstrate the ability to teach skills back to junior cadets.
Each cadet was presented with a certificate and badge by the battalion’s honorary colonel, Gavin Hastings, pictured third from left. The others are, from left, Steven Rattray, Aaron Millar and Shannon Atkinson.
