The Inspecting Officer and guests were welcomed by the Contingent Commander, Captain Paul Gaffney and met staff and cadets in a formal parade and inspection.
The Group Captain was invited to present the Contingent's new Chichester High School Banner which recognised the Schools' reorganisation which had taken place in September.

In his closing remarks the Inspecting Officer thanked the Contingent Staff and Cadets for an outstanding Inspection and went on to say how he was impressed by the confident and enthusiastic manner in which the day had been managed by the Cadet NCO's.
