CWO Taylor Leonard gave a presentation on the history and ethos of the Squadron and then the 3 officers, 3 SNCOs and 112 cadets formed the parade and where inspected by the guests. A presentations was made by the DL to CWO Jameel Campbell of his Cadet Warrant and the news announced that CWO Campbell is the London Wing nominee for the Dacre Sword. The Livery Company made a generous donation to the Sqn funds and CIs Lucy Russelland Kris Kretovs recieved their certificate of appintment.

The OC Sqn, Sqn Ldr Godden then lead the Squadron in a march past of 3 Flights, Banner Party and the Sqn Band before all ranks and guests retired to the main hall for a buffet lunch provided by the Sqn Civilian Committee. Afterwards OC31 (Tower Hamlets) Sqn Flt Lt Rex Nicholls presented the Sqn with a engraved presentation crests marking the close assocation of the 2 Squadrons.
