The Fieldcraft Training, involving cadets and staff from 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron, was held within the training ground of Gamecock Barracks, home of 30 Signals Regiment and was the culmination of weeks of training and preparation.

- Why things are seen.
- Camouflage & concealment.
- Field signals.
- Judging distance.
- Movement in the field.
- Construction of a shelter.
- Establishing Patrol harbours.
Flight Lieutenant Paul Hincks Officer Commanding 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron said, “would take this opportunity to thank 30 Signals Regiment for permitting us to use the Gamecock Barracks training area and would extend special thanks all the cadets and staff who attended for making the day such a success. The level of instruction given by our fieldcraft instructors was of a particularly high standard and I would thank them all especially FS Hadley and Sgt Barber for all their efforts on the day and for all the hard work that they had to put into the administration and organisation of a truly outstanding day of training".
