All fired up and somewhere to go

Cadets at 51 (Orton) Squadron are celebrating their 10th anniversary with  the opening of their new indoor Air rifle range.

After several weeks of hard work staff and cadets put the finishing touches to the range before it was finally put into action.

Squadron Commanding Officer Flt Lt Angela Bone said, “Competition among the cadets  has been remarkable already. In such a short space of time, cadets want to be the first to be a Squadron, Wing, Region or Corp marksman. I am very impressed at the standards already achieved, and feel it is only a matter of time before the Squadron will have a cadets wearing the various marksmanship awards on offer.”

The Squadron would like to thank Sqn Ldr Dave Simpson,  Headquarters Air Cadets who has been a tremendous help through every stage of the application, build, registration process and purchasing of the new BSA Scorpion Air rifles.
