1188 (Coalville) Squadron Air Training Corps has grown in numbers.

The new officer in charge, Pilot Officer Rod Dring RAF VR (T) had the privilege the other night of presenting to the whole of the training flight with their first class cadet badges. Since joining the squadron they have learnt lots of new skills, drill, first aid as well as learning about the RAF and Air Training Corps. Proud family members watched as they were presented with their badges and joined their new flights.
