Recently, cadets from 2418(Sherwood) sqn attended the Central and East Region 75Th anniversary parade in Lincoln. After meeting with cadets from around the wing, they travelled to RAF Scampton, the home of the Red Arrows!

After changing into their No.1 uniform, the cadets travelled to Lincoln Cathedral, where they had a short service to commemorate the 75 years of venture and adventure. The service was attended by the Regional Commandant, Group Captain Gorman, and Commandant Air cadets, Air Commodore McCafferty. When the service had finished, each wing formed up ready for the parade up to the castle.

As they marched into the castle, they gave an eyes right to the Commandant and the Lord Lieutenant for Lincolnshire, before they formed up again for the Commandants address. Corporal Hudson said “I really enjoyed the parade, 800 cadets and staff was a great way to celebrate!”
