"A key aspect of what a cadet can expect to learn during their time in the corps is drill. Drill is defined as 'a part of the training regimen of organized military elements. "Foot drill" or "Drill" stems from soldiers being expected to march into battle, gather in a formation and react to words of command from their commanders once the battle commences.' In more modern times this includes marching in and being part of a squad and taking part in parades involving salutes and various other manoeuvres. There are opportunities to learn impressive drill displays on away camps and even weapons drill which involves drill with rifles; an activity which proves popular amongst a lot of cadets. Later on in a cadet's' career they can become a drill instructor and deliver the commands to a squad rather than be in them, which develops confidence and discipline and helps in forming leadership skills.

"Being a Standard Bearer at a Remembrance Day parade is a real moment of pride and achievement for a cadet. Some would say that marching with a standard/banner is easy but that is far from the truth. Learning how to be a part of the banner party is much more complex than people expect it to be. From turning in the 'wrong' direction as an escort to multiple complex maneuvers as a Warrant Officer there will always be something that you can find to suit your ability and confidence. The banner party is a part of most ceremonial parades and I even judged at our Wing Field Training Day."
