Newton goes off with a Bang!

Article posted: Nov 12, 2010 by Sqn Ldr Pass

Wednesday 10 November saw 1936 (NEWTON) Squadron hold a bonfire and firework spectacular at the squadron HQ that brought staff, cadets, and parents together for several hours.

With more bangs and flashes than a military exercise, the evening went off with a bang. The Civilian committee arranged a superb winter BBQ with burgers, hot dogs and mushy peas to rival the biggest of public displays!

So big was the pile of wood, that the bonfire was started at around 1600 hrs, although it was noted that a Guy of the Squadron Warrant Officer was not present! The jovial atmosphere continued for several hours and was a stand down in the training programme for the busy Nottingham squadron.

The evening was a stand down before the busy Remembrance weekend, where 1936 Sqn will spend the weekend collecting for the Royal British Legion and parading at two locations in Nottinghamshire on Remembrance Sunday
