Article posted: Aug 19, 2013 by Sqn Ldr Pass

South and East Midlands Wing again hosted their annual Wing Field Day at RAF Wittering.

Wing Field Day consists of competitions in first aid, drill, leadership, shooting, modeling, aircraft recognition and media communications. As always Cadets were keen to represent the Squadron and there was a team in all the competitions.

The day went as planned with all competitions going well and although the Squadron did not come first in any individual events on the day, points were awarded for everything that was done.
At the end of the day prizes and trophies were awarded, not only for the Wing Field Day, but also for Wing Competitions that are for the whole season, of which 2070 Squadron won the following Awards and Trophies, for 2012 season:

  • Best overall Sporting Squadron
  • Best Squadron at Training and Proficiency
  • The Committee Shoot Trophy
  • The Auster Cup – Best Overall Squadron of the whole South and East Midlands Wing

An excellent Year improving from last year’s performance well done to Cadets who have represented the Squadron in all events and competitions throughout the season. The Challenge now is to maintain the high standard that we have set ourselves.
