On Thursday 18th June 2019 we had an NCO and staff soaking. Everybody had so much fun throwing sponges and tipping buckets over people especially FS Lawrence and Sgt Stephens. We made a grand total of £102.70 in support of our Charity of the Year, Scottish Veterans Residencies.
On the 31st of may until the 2nd of June four cadets went on a weekend long camp. This was their first camp for all of them. There were also two cadets that went as staff this was FS Richmond and Sgt Stephens they help teach us our radio and leadership.
The cadets arrived at the squadron at quarter to seven on the Friday we had introductions to staff and done a few leadership activities so that everyone got to know each other and they all made lots of new friends on the first night. On Saturday we got up at around half past six and got dressed into our uniform then we went to the mess for our breakfast. the first activity some cadets done was air rifle shooting.The cadets really enjoyed doing air rifle but it hurt some arms because it was that heavy and they were holding it for quite a while. when the cadets got back from shooting they done some leadership activities which was quite enjoyable. some people done radio on the Saturday and then it was swapped about. At the end of the Sunday there was a final parade where all the badges were awarded., some people got trained shot and all got leadership and radio. Overall this was a really good experience and everyone enjoyed themselves and the cadets can't wait for the next camp so they can meet with all their new friends again.
On the 6th of June 1145 Squadron took part in the Inter-squadron football tournament. Looking sharp in squadron kit, we met on the Astro turf to warm up. Each SQN played 7 games with two half's of 5 minutes per game. Every SQN taking part competed for points for the Heggerty trophy, an amalgamation of points from all sporting events in the calendar. Over all, it was a fantastic day and everyone played very well, Although we didn't win anything we all enjoyed the day.
