Cadets help with ‘Competition Enterprise’

Cadets and Staff from 41F and 1064 Sqns helped to launch nearly 40 Gliders as part of Competition Enterprise at Devon and Somerset Gliding Club.

Cadets were able to watch an amazing pyrotechnic show as some of the Gliders had lights attached to it and ‘performed’ one evening. Cadets also got hands on and helped to take one of the aerobatic gliders apart and loaded it on to its trailer.
It was hard work but a great experience. Thanks to all of those that gave time to help

41F Taunton visit War Graves

Cadets and staff from 41F (Taunton and District) Squadron visited the Commonwealth War Graves cemetery in Taunton yesterday on one of the hottest evenings of the year.

They heard the stories of the eight RAF personnel laid to rest there and during a moving service conducted by the Squadron Padre, Tony Cox, cadets laid poppies on the graves.

They took part in First Aid Courses, Duke of Edinburgh expedition training, Radio courses as well as Drill, Junior NCO and Senior NCO Courses.

Temperatures were extremely high, but all Cadets thoroughly enjoyed themselves and came away with new skills and qualifications.
