In this poster Cadet divisions are challenged to come up with the most interesting or ingenious way to hold a birthday party to mark 70 years of Cadets. Suggestions include: ‘entertaining 70 year old members of your local community’ or ‘holding a party in an unusual venue’. The competition was won by Blackwell B Winning Colliery Quadrilateral Division, Derbyshire who held a party underground at Clipstone Colliery.
