We still have a “preparing to return” thread, but more and more units are beginning to actually return. After a pretty dire year (and a lot of whinging) who has some good news stories about parading and activities that might help rekindle some enthusiasm and get back that “it’s worth it” feeling?
Following our return, I was amazed to hear details from our cadets about what they’ve been up to and learned a lot about them that’s new or had just never come up before. After so long out it was great to hear them all talk so freely and be inquisitive towards and supportive of each other.
Looks like we’re going to retain around 65%.
Looking forward now to getting back into proper training and getting off the unit for activities. We’ve reached the light at the end of the tunnel and future is bright.
