Sqn Family Day


On Sunday 21 June the Sqn held its Biannual Families Day at the Sqn HQ. Each Flight laid on a stall to raise money for the Guide Dog that they each sponsor, which was won by 2 Flight who raised £62. Other stands showed what the cadets have achieved over the last year and the wide range of activities open to them.

The Sqn Drill team gave two demonstations of marching drill and the new Recruits of 4 Flight gave displayed of static drill. The Sqn Civilian Committee laid on a BBQ which was very popular and the Sqn Flight Simulator generated a considerable amount of interest.

At the eand of the day the 2 Cadet NCOs with the most votes gasined during the day where “gunged” with a horrible mix of custard powder, flour, water and some secret ingredients! Previous victims such as OC and WO Morris looked on in sympathy (but not too much!). The OC said “I congratulate the two of them for being good sports and taking an excellent gungeing!”

The weather stayed fair and a good time was had by all. The photos show Cdt Jack West explaining the Fieldcraft Display, the committee slaving over a hot BBQ and the two unlucky victims getting “gunged!”
