A Visit from Major General Ben Bathurst, CBE

On Wednesday 20th March, Wellington College CCF was honoured to welcome Major General Ben Bathurst CBE who commands London District, which includes the Household Division.  The Major General lunched with cadets aspiring to the role of Cadet RSM in advance of taking a salute from the Colour Party and escort outside The Lodge.  The Major General was invited to inspect the Colour Party and escort, and spent time talking with them.

The Major General’s party then spent the afternoon touring training stands and talking with cadets and adult volunteers.  Of particular interest was the House Drill Competition which the General viewed on South Front.  He was then treated to a display by the Drum Corps in Front Quad and ended the afternoon viewing the RAF Section, going through their paces on the high and low ropes courses along with the MPC Section shooting on the range.
