Cadets get a Merit

Although a bit late in being reported (due to a huge amount of other news!), 2 of our Junior NCOs, Cpl Yazmin Gachette and Cpl Kiran Babla have attended a London Wing Cadet Junior Non-Commissioned Officer Course on the weekend of the 13-15 March 2009, along with other cadets from throughout London. London Wing hold two Cadet NCO courses a year.

This March’s course was held at Blackheath Barracks in South London run by Sqn Ldr J V Loxton. The course is a mix of theoritcal and practical instruction, designed to give the Corporal the tools to do his or her job on the Squadrons of the Wing and beceome a more effective leader. Both of our cadets aquited themselves well and gained a Merit Pass. Cpl Babla said ” the course was excellent,and was an eye opener as to how other Sqns work.” The photo shows the two successful NCOs at the Sqn (Cpl Gachette was nursing a hand injury, hence the sling)
