Yesterday, Sunday 8th March, Flying Officer Buckingham, Civilian Instructor, Mr Tolson and Cadet Warrant Officer Rebecca Parr took part in the Wing’s 25 mile practice march for Nijmegen training. It was a route starting at 2248 Rutland Squadron, then heading all the way around Rutland Water before ending back at 2248 Squadron.
The march was yet again a challenge with a few more hills than last time to deal with, but with the rest points at café’s along the way and marching songs as we went around we all managed to complete it yet again.
Mr Tolson commented “Honestly, there is a true sense of accomplishment that you feel once completing a march of 25 miles. Even though I ache and hurt, I still look forward to the upcoming sessions”.
