On Thursday 30th April 2009 Flight Lieutenant Clive Williams RAF VR(T) stood down as the commanding officer of 1188(Coalville) Squadron Air Training Corps. He is standing down due to increasing work commitments.
He became the commanding officer in June 2006 when he took over from Flight Lieutenant Martin King RAF VR(T). He has been involved with the Air Training Corps since he was a cadet himself. He is planning on staying on at the squadron as the Duke of Edinburgh Award officer and adventure training officer. Flying Officer Rebekah Harrison RAF VR(T) is taking over as the officer in charge until a new commanding officer can be found. Flight Lieutenant Clive Williams said” I am standing down because work is taking me too far away from Coalville to be an effective Commanding Officer. My leaving will make way for a younger, more energetic person to take the Sqn forward to greater achievements.

I hope to be a part of 1188 squadron and see it grow for a few more years.
I am proud to be a part of the squadron and pleased with the achievements of the staff and cadets.
I feel that what time I can spend on the squadron will be better spent on developing the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme and Adventure training events.
I would like to thank the staff and civilian committee for there support over the last three years.”
