E.R.R.C. Cadets. The changes happening during the last 12 months were nothing short of impressive. We had new experiences, ideas, leaders and Cadets. It was also a year in which the Cadets were divided in two groups – the Junior and Senior Cadets. It was a measure taken in order to provide the Cadets with the best possible methods of learning. Our continuous activity involved indoor meetings which enabled us leaders to impart knowledge in both First Aid and Outdoors to the Cadets. Having such basic understanding has also given them the opportunity to join the volunteer ranks where appropriate during services and activities by the E.R.R.C..
