It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Michael Haxeltine, a Civilian Instructor (CI) with Gordon’s CCF for over 30 years.
Mr Haxeltine, a former member of the Special Air Service (Reserve), worked his magic with Cadets at the School in all three Sections (Navy, Army and Air Force ).
He was passionate about passing on his knowledge to the Cadets, on such subjects as Survival, Fieldcraft and Navigation. In his later years he discovered a talent for dowsing, which lead to many hilarious times with staff and cadets on the back field!
Staff and cadets will remember him for his sense of humour, kindness, creativity, humility and above all the enthusiasm. He will be greatly missed.
