Flt Sgt Taylor and Cpl Taylor with the Winning Trophy, the third team member was Cdt Allcock (not pictured).

On Saturday April 2nd the Charnwood Hike took place, this year starting in Wymeswold.
Yet again the cadets of 1947 Birstall Air Training Corps entered teams, after last years huge success (first and third) they had to defend their champion status!
Again the cadets did the squadron proud remarked Fg Off Paul Vissani, the Squadron OC. Of the teams that entered the Squadron retained their First place crown, and also achieved fifth place, joint eleventh and fifteenth place. The day was enjoyed by all and no doubt next year the cadets will be prepared to defend their crown again and hopefully make it a hat trick of first positions!
