On the 16th of October to the 18th of October certain cadets attended first aid training, the cadets who attended were Sgt Rae, Cpl Scott (female), Cpl Maxwell and Cdt Saunders. Throughout the weekend the NCOs and cadet who attended participated in heart start, YFA and AFA which only Sgt Rae attended, altogether the NCOs and cadet who attended behaved well and represented the squadron with pride.
On the 31st of August Corporal Allan was promoted to the rank of Sergeant. Sgt Allan has been with the squadron since November 2012, during her service within cadets she has showed excellent leadership skills and also developed in inspiring recruits, cadets and corporals to try harder and achieve more. She also has gained more skills and achieved well in athletics for the squadron. Sgt Allan has made stores more efficient and effective in fitting new and elder recruits with uniform. Her selfless efforts to supply and fund the squadron have led to her promotion to sergeant.
On the 4th of October, Cpl Maxwell, Cdt Fairfield, Cdt Murray and Cdt Saunders attended RC flying at Glenrothes Model Flying Field. They honed their skills in RC flying and Cpl Maxwell received a bronze award in RC flying and is now allowed to fly aerobatic aircraft. The other cadets were taught how to flying model planes, but unfortunately boomerang II crashed and was lost due to faulty communications. The corporal and cadets who attended really appreciated and enjoyed their trip to Glenrothes Model Flying Field and hope to return soon. Altogether, they really enjoyed their trip and they also represented the 1145 squadron professionally and formally.
At camp we did many activities throughout the week including flying, the imperial war museum, spy experience, urban assault, mahram family’s day and battle of Britain memorial flight at RAF conningsby. We also had many activity’s set up such as the EOD squad, Night exercise, shooting and swimming. on base we did activity’s such as the MT section at and the heritage centre where the large majority of still functional harriers we based although they did not fly they could still be operated. While at conningsby our squadron saw some Russian mig 31s take off escorted by a large formation of typhoons. At the mahram family’s day there was a great deal to see and do such as the American EOD platoon and an American built C130 and an osprey aircraft. The F35 was also there. The typhoon and spitfire flew in formation at the airshow and the hurricane we saw at the BBMF also flew there. The red arrows, gnats and the biplane display team. At the wittering family’s day not much happened except the large majority of us got rides in a Chevrolet corvette and we got to go air rifle shooting.
On the 28th of August the 1145 squadron attended a private visit to Kinghorn RNLI station, we were met by a man called Allan who was in charge of the station and soon after we were taken inside the RNLI station, we were taught basic sea safety and we were told about some experiences of the RNLI, the bad and the good. Soon after we were given a tour of the station, we got to inspect their equipment which was very intriguing and fascinating. Their equipment was very advanced. Next, we were brought into a large room with the stations lifeboat and tractor were at rest. Finally, Allan gave a tour around the lifeboat. Altogether the tour of the Kinghorn lifeboat station was very interesting and inspiring. We hope to return soon.
