Greens Camp 2014

Cadets from 31 Tower Hamlets Sqn recently joined 18 members of 150 Sqn for a day of field craft training and competition. The daytime saw all cadets undergo practical training sessions and the new team leaders get a chance to develop their skills. The evening brought a change of pace as teams went head to head on a 3.5hr exercise designed to tests skills and stretch the team leaders. Eventually Blue team came out on top although all teams did well and showed much improvement. Thanks to Tower Hamlets for joining us, we hope to see you again.

Flying High

Oxford teenager Jake Witchalls can't drive yet, he's not even old enough to take his first driving lesson, but he can certainly fly solo. Jake, aged 16, is a Cadet Sergeant with 150 (City of Oxford) Squadron Air Cadets is celebrating after becoming one of only a handful of cadets and possibly the youngest within his Squadron to have ever gained the Air Cadet Advanced Glider Training (AGT) Gold Wings.

What's even more remarkable is that since starting his Gliding Scholarship (GS) course on the 19 th of February this year Jake has worked his way through the stages of Air Cadet glider pilot training, gaining his Silver GS wings after just a weeks training and eventually replacing them with the coveted Gold AGT wings. Jake's cadet glider pilot training began when he was awarded a Gliding Scholarship course with 612 Volunteer Gliding School at Dalton Barracks in Abingdon.

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.

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.)
