On the 27th of May, Wing Commander McCray & Squadron Leader Gray came down to the 1145 squadron to inspect our cadets and staff for our annual formal inspection, which went well.
The drill team represent the squadron's drill standards and all cadets thoroughly enjoyed talking about their projects that they've been working on since the start of 2019. The Wing Commander was very impressed with the standard of the drill team and wish us all the best for the drill competition in the coming weeks. After that the Wing Commander went around the projects and was interested in what were were doing. He also done an interview with us on what it is like to be in his role, which is displayed below. At the end of the night he presented some awards and spoke to us a bit.
We are aiming to be nominated to represent our wing at regional levels. The Wing Commander was very pleased with us and wished us all the best in the future.
On the 16th of June 13 cadets participated in the wing drill competition, something they had been practising for for months. The competition is one that the squadron takes pride in, and has had huge success in for many years, so there was a large amount of pressure on the team. All of them put a massive amount of effort into both practising for this event and the display on the day, and were all very happy to have earned second place, with Livingston squadron, the corp champions, taking first by a small margin. The squadron is proud of these cadets and their performance on the day, with all cadets thoroughly enjoying themselves.
