Introduction to 150 Squadron

150 (City of Oxford) SquadronWelcome to the web site of 150 (City of Oxford) Squadron Air Training Corps (ATC), the area’s largest and best equipped Cadet Unit. We are a large and friendly squadron run by a dedicated staff team.  Unlike some other youth organisations we have high standards and expect a lot from our cadets… we give a lot in return though… For more information take a look at our prospectus, fill in the joining form or pay us a visit.

Have you got what it takes?

If so we’ll see you on the parade square!

Air Training Corps Aims

ATC LogoWe run and active and demanding program of activities in accordance with the three core aims of the ATC:

  • To promote and encourage among young people a practical interest in aviation and the Royal Air Force.
  • To provide training which will be useful in both the Services and civilian life.
  • To foster the spirit of adventure and develop qualities of leadership and good citizenship.

Remembrance Parade 2009

2009 was my first remembrance parade in uniform.  A slightly nervous occasion since my drill is not as practiced as it might be.  I was concentrating very hard during the march down St Giles.  By the way, the brown officers’ gloves are next to useless, so no need for envy on that score. (Ed.)

The Fall of the Berlin Wall

The Berlin Wall.

Two things triggered this article, firstly, the 20th Anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the secondly the imminent visit of a veteran from the Berlin Airlift.  I was still at school when the Berlin Wall came down and the Army section of my CCF unit was on camp in Germany when it happened.  I remember quite clearly the photos of our CSM sitting on the wall with a hammer.  When they came back the Officers’ and SNCO’s mess was presented with a fragment of the wall.  In this article CI Scott gives us some of the back ground.

Browndown Adventure Training Camp 2009

Each summer, a multi-wing event is staged which focuses on the green and AT elements of the ATC syllabus.  We’ve not had a strong representation at this event in the past, so we were pleased that Cdt Ruffel went to bring us back news. (Ed.)
