Recruit Flight 56 Passes Out

After an packed 6 months of Training the June Recruit Course (the 56th such course the Sqn has run since 1988 ) passed out and the cadets were posted into the main 3 Flights on the Sqn. Their training has consisted of learning about the ATC and RAF, Weapon Training, use of radios, Expedition Training, Drill, Sport, and Airmanship.

25 Cadets were present together with their parents for a formal parade and presentation of their Flight Markers.

The parents watched a drill display by the cadets and were then given a presentation of what their young people had achieved and the opportunities open to them in the future by Fg Off Nick Harvey.

The Flight was then marched onto the Sqns Final Parade and the cadets welcomed to the main Sqn by the OC, Sqn Ldr Jerry Godden, and then marched to their new Flights, where a bright future awaits them.

A number of cadets also gained awards for their efforts over the last 6 months.

Cdt Inyat was the Best Sports Person
Cdt Hargreaves was the Best Turned Out and Drill
Cdt King was the Best Academic

and Cdt Thompson was the Best overall Cadet, winning the Jack Petchy Award for December, now having £200 to spend on Sqn equipment of his choice.
