On Saturday the 4th of May cadets helped open the Army Vs Royal Navy game by carrying out the White Ensigned flag onto the pitch.
Senior Events Officer Seb Britton said “It started raining heavily just before the cadets went out on the pitch but this didn’t dampen their spirits, all the cadets did superbly well and put on a great show in front of 80,000 rugby fans. There’s very little time to practice carrying the White Ensign ahead of the game and once you’re on the pitch you can’t hear anything over the noise of the crowd. It’s a nerve-racking experience, especially when the flag is revealed but the cadets managed to pull it off perfectly!"
One parent commented saying "the cadets did so well and made us very proud".
The overall score was 27-11 to Army
