Bridlington Army Cadets Step Back in Time at 1940s Weekend


Sunday 4 June saw army cadets and adult volunteers from Bridlington Detachment, Humberside and South Yorkshire ACF attend Bridlington old town 1940s weekend to support the town and recruit in the local area.

The Detachment set up a great stand showing life in the ACF, including having the climbing wall operating.

Following the old town parade in the morning, the cadets took up their places showcasing APC lessons throughout the day.

The cadets had a visit from the North East England Cadet Pipes & Drums who played a selection of tunes and performed Highland dances to support the detachments recruiting efforts

Detachment Commander Staff Sergeant Instructor (SSI) Zara Thorpe said “I would personally like to thank all who took part in the day especially the added support from SSI Ashworth & Staff Instructor Thomlinson and the NEEC Pipes & Drums.

We really showcased the ACF and hopefully the public could see how much hard work our young people do. I’m so proud of them and their efforts today.”
