Inspection Day

Army Section wins overall competition

This year we welcomed General Sir Richard Barrons as our Inspecting Officer. General Barrons is also an alumnus of Merchant Taylors’ (Class of 1976) and enjoyed a highly distinguished military career, eventually holding the post of Head of Joint Forces Command. The day went extremely smoothly and a particular mention must go to U/O Jacob Softleigh-Moore who expertly marshalled the Cadets. The Army Section, which won the Drill and tug-of-war, won overall, while the Navy Section won the rafting competition.
