Following training and assessments  at both weekend camps and detachment a group of Army Cadets from Holsworthy have received Army Cadet Sylabus (ACS) progression badges.

The badges are awarded at different levels for demonstration of both practical and theoretical skills including shooting First Aid adventure training and community engagement. 

Nine basic and four 1-star badges were awarded.

Presenting the badges detachment commander Lt Jim Harvey added “All the recipients have committed to and worked hard towards their ACS badges and are a credit to themselves. As Detachment Commander it makes me very proud to see our young people achieving their goals.”

Holsworthy Detachment is currently seeking additional adult volunteers to help deliver training to 40 plus young people. For more information go to and follow the “ join as an adult” link.
