This airborne JNCO leadership cadre shows the tests these young leaders go through to develop their leadership skills and excellent commanders in battle. Being in a high readiness brigade means there is an additional twist on leadership, have your kit packed and be comfortable with each helicopter type. The six-week cadre took place at Sir John Moore Barracks, Shorncliffe in Kent, as well as in Brecon and Caerwent, prior to the fire break in Wales.
