Cape Town Military Tattoo 2010: The Drill Squad

Once all the participants in the First Muster had left the arena, the Drill Squad from the Western Province School Marching Drill and Exhibition Association (WP SMDEA) emerged from the Kat archway. They were led out by their vigorous troop of drummers, who kept up a relentless beat, energising and driving on the squad.

Smartly dressed in black pants, white shirts and blue waistcoats, as well as blue caps and white gloves, the drill squad, consisting of girls and boys, gave an impeccable performance of their intricate routine.

Their intensive rehearsals and training by members of the SA Army Band Cape Town had clearly paid dividends. (You can read more about their most recent training camp, during the mid-term September holidays: here).

The drill squad is made up of learners from various schools around the Western Cape, including primary schools and high schools in Mitchell’s Plain, and high schools in Manenberg, Beaufort West and the Strand.
