Busy Cadets

Over the last three weekends the Sqn has taken part in a number of different activities showing the wide range of opportunities available to cadets. At the recent Wing Athletics competition the Sqn came a respectable 3rd and seven cadets then gained Wing Blues for representing the Wing in various disciplines at the Region Athletics Competition at Crawley last Sunday helping the Wing to win the competition. Over 30 cadets participated in a Bronze DoE Expedition practise in Epping Forest with an overnight camp at Gilwell Park in preperation for their main expedition in June, whilst 11 cadets went flying at RAF Wyton in the Tutor, experiencing the thrills of aerobatics. Cadets also had the opportunity to fire both the L98A2 cadet rifle and the L81 Target Rifle on the hotest day of the year so far, a radical change from the last shoot on the Bank Holiday weekend!
