Congratulations go to the members of the RAF Section who participated in the above competition held at Blandford Camp, Dorset, on Sunday 22nd January 2017.

Although they were unplaced in the Shooting Section, their tremendous results gave them first place overall, the first time the Contingent has won this competition.

The motivation, enthusiasm, determination and drive came from the cadets themselves, with the NCO’s leading by example as they taught and encouraged the younger cadets, perfectly demonstrating the ethos and aim of the Contingent. 

A huge ‘Well Done’ therefore goes to:

Sgt I Rees                            
Cpl A Busuttil-Reynaud                             
Cdt S Brown                        
Sgt B Morrison

On Friday 27th January, the Contingent paraded at 1520hrs.  This allowed for the Air Squadron Trophy Competition winners to be congratulated and for a visit and short presentation to be given by former cadet 2Lt L Kemp, 5 Rifles.
