Armed Forces Day

The Sqn fully supported last weekends National Armed Forces Day, which is a celebration of the men and women of the Armed Forces. Veterans and Cadets. Not withstanding Gliding on the Saturday and L81 shooting on the Sunday cadets attend the Chingford event on Saturday (right picture) with cadets from 27F and 296 Sqns, and Redbridge with 4F Sqn (left hand picture) and made a smart impression as they paraded the Sqn banner behind marching bands with the TA, Army and Sea Cadets and veterans. Now well established in its 5th year the Sqn is proud to play a part in these events. Additionally CWO Raj, Cpl Lungu and Cdt Outzen paraded with other cadets from London Wing at City Hall on the Monday for the formal raising of the Armed Forces Day Flag by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, who is seen talking to the cadets after the event.
