What an Honour
Air Cadets from across Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire Wing, joined together to attend the Wing Commander Bowers farewell dinning out night at RAF Wyton.
Cpl Conor Wells proudly represented 51 (Orton) Squadron as Banner Bearer, whilst Cpl Amy-Louise Paul was part of the wing band which performed in the Officers mess during the arrival of the guests.
Cpl Wells paraded the Squadron banner for 30 minutes whilst Wing Commander Bower spoke to the attending cadets. Prior to this Cpl Wells took part in an intense 3 and half hours training to be ready for the occasion, and he said "I learnt so much about this whole process and enjoyed the day".Cpl Paul was one of the several musicians in the wing band, who played during the entrance of the guests and also the National Anthem for the Royal Toast. She also participated in some rigorous training in which she was introduced to new musicians and learnt new pieces and reintroduced some old favourites.
Cpl Paul, has played at many events, being a member of the Corps band, and she commented that "Once again, I have been involved in a very special Occasion and honoured to have the opportunity to represent my squadron".If you're looking for an exciting and challenging hobby or opportunities to make new friends why not find out more about The Air Cadets and our Squadron by visiting our Squadron, we meet on a Tuesday and Wednesday between 1900-2115 at the Squadron HQ.
