7 cadets and 5 staff attended a special church service at St John the Baptist Church in Corby Village on Sunday 3rd February. The aim of the service was to remember the date of the Air Training Corps being formed on the 5th February 1941, Squadrons from all parts of the Country celebrated in their local churches. The local vicar, The Reverend Paul Inman conducted a special family service based on the cadets and youths of today.

422 Squadron Officer in Charge, Pilot Officer Jim Bratt said he was delighted at the service laid on, as it was very appropriate to local issues happing around the country, with problems of youths and lack of facilities for them to stay off the street.

Cdt Cluff (aged 15) who was attending his first parade said it was quite nerve racking at first but once I was inside I felt at ease.
