Innes Sword

This weekend was London Wing’s annual Inness Sword Competition, this year held at Crowborough. The Inness Sword is one London Wing’s premier competitions, where Squadrons enter a team to compete over two days in various military skills. This year 25 Squadrons took part in the hope of winning this prestigious trophy and going on to represent London Wing at the Elworthy Sword Competition in October.

Unfortunately we did not win this year; instead we again came a very commendable second. Whilst obviously a disappointment, the team can take a lot pride in the hard work and effort they put in, during both training and the competition.

Congratulations to 344 (Hammersmith) Sqn for winning and good luck to them at the Elworthy Sword Competition.  Out of eight events the team won two, the full positions are as follows:

Drill and Strecher Race- First

First Aid and Shooting – 2nd

Assault Course -4th

Orienteering and Observation – 9th

Command Task –  14th

The team look forward to the 2013 Competition with the aim to regain the 1st place and bring back the sword!
