On Monday, October 29, the unit attended the Remembrance Art Trail in association with the Royal British Legion, and along with members of the armed forces were able to meet the artist behind the project, Mark Humphrey.

Mr Humphrey has created 11 stunning pieces of art that will be displayed across the estate to commemorate 100 years since the end of the First World War.

A spokeswoman said: “The cadets were inspired by what they saw and enjoyed speaking with the artist Mark Humphrey their favourite pieces were the Jutland window and the brothers in arms piece which reminded them of pieces of an airfix model.”
