As part of the Great War remembrance, 38 Brigade have marked this anniversary by setting different ways to engage with the public as well as the youth. One of these programmes was titled Local Heroes, this was sent out to all Cadets to enter with the programme being split down as CCFs and Sea Cadets in one category and the other category between the Army Cadet detachments.
The event happened yesterday at Palace barracks with Jacob Galbraith, Adam Feathers and Jamie Bankhead presenting their story to a panel of 8 judges from 38 Brigade,two of which were local Historians.
The guys did very well indeed with strong opposition from all the CCFs in the province as well as the Sea Cadets. It was far from an easy group especially as Campbell used their past pupil that was awarded the VC and Bangor quoted a local sailor that fought in the Battle of Jutland in HMS Caroline. After speaking to the judges it was very close battle between ourselves and RBAI, with the guys being piped into second place but they received great praise and a large around of applause from the panel.
