New detachment commander hopes to encourage more to the Army Cadet Force
Tony Gubb is the new detachment commander of the Sidmouth Devon Army Cadet Force and is encouraging more 12 to 18-year-old kids to get involved.
Cadets have the chance to experience life away from home on trips abroad, summer camps and weekends away throughout the year.
The teenagers can add to their CV by completing the Duke of Edinburgh award with the cadets.
The force provides an opportunity for physical activity such as water sports, mountain biking and field exercises.
