Congrats to Fg Off S who finally got to go to Buckingham Palace...

... and collect his Gold DofE certificate at the weekend. He even got to meet the new Duke of Edinburgh. Prince Edward was made Patron of the Duke of Edinburgh Award in March.

We have 6 cadets who are currently finishing off their longer Gold sections, or getting them signed off having completed their "arduous mountain experiences" last year so a few more Golds to harvest this year, plus aspirations to get newer 16 year olds engaged. Ideally we enroll them on Gold as soon as they're 16 so that we can get expedition done before they're in Year 11 and are able to count their Air Cadets activities for Skills, Volunteering, Residual and Physical. They have until they're 24 years old to finish all the sections but having expeditions done before they're 18 is usually the 'Gold' key to success.
