Cadet Corps detachment performing a drill at Cayman Brac High School

On Friday, 19 November the Cayman Islands Cadet Corps prepared at the Cayman Brac High School for the upcoming Drill Competition in Grand Cayman.

All performing Cadets were dressed in their drill dress uniforms for this event. A minimum of ten minutes and a maximum time of fifteen minutes were allocated to the competing detachment.

The Inspecting officer first inspected the captain of the detachment. After this, the Captain was asked to accompany him as he inspected the detachment. During the inspection, the inspecting officer considered the uniformity of all uniforms, the neatness and appearance of the uniforms, and the condition and appearance of the Colours.

During the Foot Drill Competition phase, the detachment performed mandatory drill movements before the judges. Amongst the drill movements were saluting; left, right and about turns; changing directions while marching and at the halt, breaking from quick to slow marching and changing step in slow and quick time.

One of the objectives of the Cadet Corps is to promote respect and courtesy for the National Colours of the Cayman Islands and the Cadet Corps. One way to achieve this goal is by setting an example. Another objective of CICC is to promote perfection in the art of competition and to have rules and regulations that will be similar to the rules of all other military organizations and associations throughout the Caribbean and other countries.
