Two members of 2195 (Long Eaton) Squadron Air Training Corps (ATC) were flying high last night at the announcement of their promotion. Congratulations to Cadet Corporal Ethan Bates and Cadet Corporal Lani Diggle.

Corporal Bates has recently been to RAF Wittering to complete his Wing Initial NCO course, of which along with his length of service within the ATC gives him a good background to continue his involvement in the organisation and to move onto the next stage. Corporal Bates said “I am thrilled and excited to be given the opportunity to perform the duties of a Corporal. The INCO course which I recently attended was not only enjoyable but very worth wild and I would strongly recommend that should anyone have the opportunity to attend this course to do so with pride”.

Corporal Diggle was shocked to be promoted and accepted the promotion with much pride. Corporal Diggle has shown her potential to not only the Squadron but also the Air Cadets as a whole, and is role model for the organisation. Corporal Diggle commented “I feel really privileged that my hard work and commitment to the squadron and my fellow cadets has been recognised and rewarded with my recent promotion to Corporal and it is just the start of my goal of getting Cadet Warrant Officer. With my new found rank and responsibilities I feel very positive about 2015”.
