The Combined Arms Staff Trainer comes in three versions:
- South, a nice new, purpose built building just inside the gate in Warminster camp.
- North, based at Catterick.
No-one is really sure what CAST is actually for other than to consume vast quantities of soldiers & officers time and get Commanding Officers very excited. Is the Officers preferred method of exercise as it involves very little outdoor work.
People used to be afraid of the CAST, but now it seems to be much more of a 'learning' experience than a 'testing' one.
