Flt Lt Liz Kerr, OC 1101 (Kettering) Sqn and Flt Lt Ian Rose, OC 1947 (Birstall) Sqn were recently presented with Commandant’s Certificates of Meritorious Service by Wg Cdr Nigel Dickinson, OC South & East Midlands Wing.

The presentations were made during the Wing NCO Training Courses held at RAF Cottesmore.

The pair were recommended for the award by Sqn Ldr Mark Richards, Wing Training Officer (Cadet Development) in recognition of their contribution towards Cadet training within South & East Midlands Wing. Both Flt Lt Kerr and Flt Lt Rose have been involved in the Wing NCO Courses since South & East Midlands Wing was formed in September 1999.

The first South & East Midlands Wing NCO courses were run in 2000 and since this time both recipients have been involved in the NCO courses. This is in addition to their responsibilities as Squadron Commanders of successful units.

Wg Cdr Dickinson thanked them both for their contribution to the NCO courses and Cadet training within the Wing over the years as well as carrying out the demanding role of being Squadron Commanders and supporting the Wing on various other fronts including Nijmegen, Adventure Training and the Wing Spring Camps.
