Around 800 friends and family also attended to watch. It was a significant day as the last time they would have seen them was when they entered the college.

Family watched a presentation on the basic training before being taken to a very foggy parade square. Waterloo Company proudly marched out before an inspection by Major Chris Lamb.

 

Mayor Chris Lamb, Officer Commanding Waterloo Company, said:

Today formally marks the completion of the 6-weeks basic training.  During that time they have had a taste of everything at the College, but it is now time for them to go home for a weeks break – many of them will be very tired.
