Nine cadets from Bedford School and Bedford Girls’ School have won the Cadet Challenge Shield – last won by the school (as Bedford Grammar School), when the competition was inaugurated in 1902. The CADSAAM is a national shooting competition for CCF (Combined Cadet Forces) and ACF (Army Cadet Forces) in the Eastern area. This year, the competition took place at Beckingham Ranges near Lincoln on Sunday 9 September. The competition was composed of four separate shoots, shot over ranges of 100 to 300 metres. The Bedford School team won three; the Montgomery of Alamein, the Earl Roberts and the Falling Plate and narrowly missed out on the Section Attack. The two Fire Teams achieved first and second places across the entire competition and the team itself won overall, winning the Cadet Challenge Shield. The team was composed of seven boys from Bedford School and two girls from Bedford Girls’ School. Fifth former Dan Lumley-Wood was awarded top shot overall.
