The Cambrian Challenge
At the end of 2011 a team of personnel from General Systems Flight (GSF) participated in ‘The Cambrian Challenge’ for the second year running, raising £295 for the RAF Benevolent Fund in the process.
The Cambrian Challenge is a three day expedition comprising of a 17km Hill Walk, a 14km Canoe on a grade 1-2 river, a 33km Mountain Bike and two Rock Climbs with the teams spending four nights under canvas living off ration packs. 14 teams of six personnel from Stations across the country took part in the event with teams from GSF and Combined Maintenance Unit (CMU) representing RAF Marham. Both teams successfully completed all tasks presented before them with a “can do” attitude and represented RAF Marham with distinction.
The GSF team of six were, SAC Green (team leader), Cpl Salway, A/Cpl Main, SAC Caddy, SAC Booth and SAC Peach. The cheque was presented to RAF Marham’s Station Commander, Group Captain Cooper, who accepted the cheque on behalf of the RAF Benevolent Fund.
