Article posted: Apr 14, 2010 by Flt Lt Rayson-Flynn

Cadets and staff from 1461 Wigston Sqn joined their colleagues from 2502 Hamilton Sqn for a weekends basic Fieldcraft training.
The training event held at John’s Lee Wood was hosted by 2502 Sqn and the cadets learnt personal camouflage techniques, how to live in the field, and patrolling, as well as putting their leadership techniques to the test. The cadets were in mixed flights to encourage inter squadron working which produced some great results. The weather held for most of the weekend, however a down pour overnight turned the camp area to something resembling the Somme!

Officer in charge 1461 Sqn, Flying Officer Tim Hargraves said, “This has been a great opportunity for the cadets to work together and meet new friends from another unit. This is the first joint training weekend planned for this year, lets hope they are all as successful as this one!”
