Air Cadets at 1182 (Shepton Mallet) Squadron have been learning about basic photography during a recent visit to their squadron from Devon & Somerset Wings’ Media Communications Officer Squadron Leader Dave Rolfe.

The cadets were issued with cameras and following a briefing they took part in a photographic exercise in and around the squadron HQ. A number of photographic tasks were set for the cadets to complete all within a limited time.

Squadron Leader Dave Rolfe said “ I hope tonight’s training

will encourage the cadets to develop a practical interest in photography which will help them to achieve good results in cadet photographic competitions which are run annually at Wing, Region and Corps level. It is also a good skill to for those cadets taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.”

Do you have a skill you could share with the Air Cadets? If you’re aged 20 or over you can volunteer as an adult member of staff. There is no need for military experience or any form of previous training – we’ll take care of that. We’re just looking for suitable, enthusiastic individuals to help our cadets get the most from their time with us. If you do already have a skill or qualification which will be of use then all the better.

The benefits of being a part of the Air Cadet Organisation are the same for volunteers as for cadets – the opportunity to do lots of exciting activities and develop personal skills and talents. As a volunteer this is free to you!
