This weekend Flying Officer Buckingham joined the rest of the South and East Midlands Wing Air Cadets Road Marching Team for a weekend of marches in south and east Derbyshire. Saturday began at 0800 for a 25 mile circuit followed by a 15 mile route following the River Trent on Sunday. Flight Sergeant (ATC) Smith joined to provide the safety car and team photographer.
Despite being the most challenging training session all cadets made it through without any major problems. There now remains only one more training session before the RAFWARMA Two-day March at RAF Cosford in April.
Fg Off Buckingham said “it was a very good weekend through some beautiful parts of the county. The team is starting to really bond and they missed the other two 2195 Squadron members on the team, Mr Tolson and CWO Parr, who were both attending a course all weekend.”
