2015 Cadet Activities

Rimutaka Walk


On 27 September a re-enactment of the march completed by 60,000 soldiers heading to troops ships bound for Europe during WW1 was conducted. This march included Officers and Cadets from the City of Upper Hutt Cadet Unit, 21 and 22 Squadron ATC Units.

LT Philps and 2LT Howell (both pictured on the right of the above image) were among the platoon of soldiers wearing authentic uniforms provided by Sir Peter Jackson.

Cadets also assisted with the celebrations and helped by directing traffic and the cleanup.
