Former Plt Off RAFVR(T) Matt Davies left 241 Sqn in January 2008. However he wasn’t deserting the cause;he was joining the Army as a commissioned officer!
On the 12 Dec 08, on a cold but dry day, Matt passed out as a 2nd Lt at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst having successfully completed his gruelling Inital Officer Training over the past 12 months.
The former Cadet Warrant Officer has now achieved a life long ambition to join the Armed Forces and moves onto professional training at the School of Artillery at Larkhill, Wiltshire.
Sqn Ldr Jerry Godden attended his pass out parade and said “This was a proud day for Matt and I was honoured to be invited to see him on parade. This shows what an individual can do if they put their mind to it and rise to the challenge!”
Matts younger brother Danny passed out exactly a year ago from Sandhurst and is currently on active service.
