w/e 18 May 2012

We had a great turn out on Saturday morning as part of the new Mayor's parade. Once again members of the public past on their congratulations and thanks for participation. We also has a contingent of ex-serving airmen join us in our ranks, we would like to thank them for their involvement and enjoyment, it shows the high regard that they have for the young people of Rotherham and our Squadron in particular. As veterans at some point in their life they wrote a blank cheque, made payable to Queen and Country for an amount up to and including their life. They are a great honour to our nation.

This week we had an evening of physical training and an evening given over to projects. Cpl Haywood gave a talk to cadets about his kitting for an upcoming deployment to Afghanistan. Cdts Robson and Deakin lead a radio comms evening and are aiming to get a small group through their communications qualification.

We learnt that Cpl Dovey, Cdt Richardson and Cdt Finnie have been selected to represent our Wing in athletics at the Regional competition.

We also have two cadets attending the JNCO course next weekend at Wing HQ.

Finally, good luck to Plt Off Barnes, this week he undertakes his initial officers course at the Adult Training Facility, RAF Cranwell.
