Drill and Ceremonial

Drill is a fundamental part of military life, it shows how disciplined and organised you can be as an individual - it also shows how well you work as a team player. When a group of Cadets walk onto a parade square they are all individuals, but as soon as a session of drill begins the Cadets become a team, following the orders given by one person.  Instead of twenty individual feet hitting the ground there is only one sound. This is the result of practice and teamwork.

Drill is also used when you are moving around in large groups in a smart, orderly fashion. Whatever the reason for a drill it's an impressive sight and shows civilians and members of the Forces just how well disciplined you are.

As a Cadet you'll participate in various forms of drill such as:

  • Foot Drill

  • Basic Drill (both quick & slow time)

  • Banner Drill

  • Band Drill
