  • British Officer Cadets make their mark at US academy competition

    British Officer Cadets taking part in this year's Sandhurst Cup in America have won the top two best international team positions.

    The British Cadets also won the Navigational Streamer, presented to the overall winner of the land navigation section of the two day challenge.

    Fifty teams took part in the annual inter-company military skills competition at the United States Military Academy West Point, including seven international guest teams from Canada, Australia, Afghanistan, Taiwan, Chile and two Royal Military Academy Sandhurst teams.

    The two day competition combined a six minute team marksmanship challenge, as well as a four and a half hour combat assault challenge including obstacle courses, command tasks, mental and physical endurance challenges such as a rope ravine crossing and casualty carries, a 90 minute navigation course followed by a river boat crossing and a first aid casualty assessment, before finishing with a series of mental military challenges.
