In a nationally televised and incredibly prestigious event, supporting the RAF as they celebrated the anniversary of the Battle of Britain in Westminster Abbey and Central London, 1921 cadets were well represented.
After a tough selection procedure, including commitment and training at the Wing’s Inness Sword Competition, as well as a full day’s rehearsal and training at RAF Northolt under the watchful eye of the Queens Colour Squadron, two of the Squadron’s cadets marched out on to the streets of Central London on a crisp September morning.
Sgt Fogarty and Cdt Lewis, immaculate in their uniforms, took their place among the marching contingent, headed by the RAF Regiment Band and Queens Colour Squadron.
This was a once in a lifetime opportunity, commented the Squadron’s Commander, with a Royal Salute taken by HRH Prince Charles, and a Spitfire and Hurricane flying overhead. I’m so proud of the cadets who volunteered, and know that they will have an amazing memory for the rest of their lives!
