Newton Squadron Holds Remembrance Day Parades

Article posted: Nov 21, 2012 by Sqn Ldr Pass

On the 11th of November, 1936 (Newton) Squadron paraded at not one but two locations: Aslockton and Radcliffe. The Squadron Banner and many of the Squadron’s cadets attended the Aslockton parade. Both parades started at 10:15am sharp with the predicted time of finishing by 12:00pm.

Everyone attending the Radcliffe Remembrance Day Parade met up at the Black Lion pub with the other multiple youth and adult services. The St.John’s Ambulance, Girl’s Venture Corp and Royal British Legion just to name a few were in attendance.

The wreath at Radcliffe was laid by Cpl Connor Levers and the wreath at Aslockton was laid by OC 1936 (Newton) Squadron Fg Off Helen Day.

Once everyone was in church at Radcliffe, the day’s church service started. After a few hymns and prayers, both FS Guyle Wilson and Cpl Connor Levers were required to read out passages to the whole audience of the church.

After the church service was over the cadets did a march past, passing the Lord Lieutenant and his wife. Cpl Levers stood with the Lord Lieutenant and returned the salute from the Squadron and various other organisations.

All in all the day was a great success, all cadets gave 110% and this could be seen. The Cadets made the Squadron proud.
