      With 33 Cadets on parade, the evening started with a very comprehensive briefing by Cadets on their recent visit to the WW1 Flanders Battlefields in Flanders.

      This was followed by the latest intake of Cadets to the Squadron, gathering to recite the Air Cadet Promise, a requirement for all new Air Cadets. They then went on to receive their First Aid certificates and badges, for passing the Cadet first aid course.

      The Squadron OC, Flt Lt Pauline Petch, said “it was wonderful to see so many parents present to see their Cadets in parade in such auspicious surroundings and to witness the results of so much hard work by the Cadets during the year”.

      The evening culminated in a reception for all the Guests and parents present and a raffle towards Sqn funds.
