Following on from its rather chilly trip to the South Pole; the 2388 Castleford Squadron Brassard has been travelling yet again this time to warmer climates on a two week long trip to Tasmania in Australia.

Cadet Corporal Steven Wider took the brassard to his native Tasmania during a family trip in December 2013. During the visit Steven stayed with relatives in a house in the wilderness, located in the shadow of Mt Wellington near the provincial capital of Hobart.


During its stay the Brassard met with all kinds of wildlife, spotting Bandicoots, lizards and Wallabies; and even finding a scorpion. During a visit to Stevens Grandparents the Brassard became a comfy bed for a blue tongued lizard that had found its way into his Grandparents house to escape the sun.

Flying Officer Matthew Bulmer commented “Following on from its trip to the South Pole with one of the Squadron Service helpers it is fantastic that the brassard has travelled to yet another exotic part of the world with one of the Cadets on the Squadron. We look forward to 2014 in which we have many exciting trips planned for it with Cadets and Staff of the Corps. With the Brassard ready to travel again you can keep up to date with its travels by following @ATCBrassard.”
