Journalism in the Army Cadets

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Once the summer term comes to a close, my thoughts turn to the Lincolnshire Army Cadet Force annual camp. This year, 250 youngsters spent a fortnight in North Yorkshire where they have to put up with me and my camera as I attempt to capture the action (and the stories).

My job is to generate press releases and put together an on-line magazine so those inside and outside the Army Cadets can see what those involved get up to.

If you’re interested, follow this link to the autumn magazine:

Whilst at camp I also, you’ve guessed it, train up those cadets who are interested in journalism/photography. Many of the images in the above magazine are snapped by cadets.
