504 (West Nottingham) Squadron, Royal Air Force Air Cadets were honoured to join the deputy Lord Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire – Col. Roger Merryweather, Leader of Nottinghamshire County Council and Branch members of Wollaton Royal British Legion in celebrating the Legion’s 90th birthday year.

Flying Officer Woodward, 504 staff member said “We were proud to accept the invitation; the Legion does sterling work for both Serving and ex members of our armed forces.”

Cadet Sarah York said “It was nice to meet some of the veterans on this happier day. Normally we only meet in November for Poppy Collection and Remembrance Parades when their first thoughts are with lost comrades”.
