This Week In Pictures (15/11/21)

1 / 3 We've finished remembrance parade prep, now onto our next big event... Prize Giving!

1 / 4 More parade preparation this week! This time we were focusing on bulling and polishing parade shoes. Here are a shiny pair of parade shoes bulled by new recruit Cdt H.

You've not only done the squadron proud, but

Cadets assist at the Warwick Bonfire

On Saturday 6th November, cadets helped at the Warwick Bonfire. The annual event at the Warwick Racecourse is a charity fundraiser for the Lions and Rotary Clubs. Cadets helped in setting up the bonfire on the Saturday morning, and then returned late afternoon to assist with entry into the racecourse as well as assisting the public with any issues. The cadets enjoyed the bonfire and fireworks display in the evening. Finally, the cadets helped pack away equipment before heading home. This is not the first time 1368 Squadron have been to the bonfire, and look forward to offering its services in the future.
