A massive congratulations to the Long Eaton Air Cadet Banner Drill team, who today placed 2nd in the South and East Midlands Wing Banner Drill Competition. This is the first time ever they have come in the top 3 of the competition.

The team was made up of Banner Bearer, Cadet Flight Sergeant Damien Simpson, Banner NCO IC, Cadet Warrant Officer Rebecca Parr, the two Escorts Cadet Sergeant Craig Harrison and Cadet Bradley Scriven, and finally our Banner Orderly Cadet Lani Diggle.

They were only 1.5 points behind local rivals and winners for the last 5 years 1360 Stapleford & Sandiacre Squadron Air Cadets, the closest the competition has been for some time.

Flying Officer Kment said “The place we came in the competition today really shows how well our cadets can do with hard work and commitment. The standard of competition this year was higher than ever before. Well done 2195 for all the effort you put in.”
