TEENAGE Army cadet Company Serjeant Major Wesley Williams has flown out to Canada as the UK’s sole representative in the Rocky Mountain Challenge.

Former Taunton Academy student Wesley, 18, from Priorswood, Taunton, was invited back after his exploits as one of six British competitors last year.

During his seven weeks over there, he will be responsible for leading a platoon of 30 cadets through a multitude of challenging and adventurous activities, many in demanding conditions, including white water kayaking, rock climbing, mountain-biking, hiking, and horse riding.

Wesley will end his six year cadet service when he returns to the UK and takes up a place at King’s College University, in London.
