The Expedition Skills for Cadets Handbook is the essential general navigation training guide for all cadets and instructors including army cadets, air cadets and sea cadets. This cut down slim edition is designed as an informative reference source to back up and enhance cadet navigation training within all cadet organisations and units. The handbook has been created to help cadets become confident when reading a map, navigating through unfamiliar terrain and gaining the skills needed to plan their own expedition.

The book also covers the expedition modules in the RAF Air Cadet’s First Class Cadet and Leading Cadet training syallbus. Written by an experienced CFAV and professional author, this expedition skills book is broken down into short, simple to understand chapters, that flow in a logical and easy to comprehend sequence.
