Recruits Pass Out

On Monday 19 March the Squadron saw the formal passout parade for No 68 Recruit Flight. After a packed 6 Р8 months of training the 22 cadets were posted into the main 2 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, and having the opportunity to take part in powered flying and rifle shooting, and about to  completie a recruit training weekend at Crowborough Training Camp.

Their proud 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 second in command of the Squadron. 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 were presented with awards for Drill (Cdt Cracknell), Sports (Cdt Bean), Exams (Cdt Misra), Most Improved (Cdt Wilson) and the Best Cadet being Cdt Serwaki.
