On Tuesday the 13th we attended 603 (City of Edinburgh) Sqn for a WW1 100 year commemoration event. This was an event that we had 8 cadets in attendance which included FS Maxwell, Cpl Richmond, White, Lawrence, Clough, Cdt Lawrence and Penman. We all attended this with another Sqn from Edinburgh.
We started with going into a room which had objects from WW1 on each table where we guessed what objects were on the table and what their uses were. These included Fleshets, Message dropper, Flight map and a model BE2.
After we went downstairs and heard a presentation on WW1 and how it linked to WW1. We learnt that 603 Sqn was formally a Whiskey briary which was given by Teacher Whiskey when the person who died they said on there will they would give it to the RAF when they died.
This was an interesting event to attend hearing from all of the vollenteers giving us the information, were doing this to raise awareness of why WW1 happened. All of the cadets thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
