In the wake of the celebration of D-Day, a veteran from WW2 came to the Squadron and gave a presentation. Former Aircrew Sergeant Clarence (Jack) Ball talked to the cadets about his cadet service in 1939, how he was recruited in to the RAF and other activities.
He told the cadets about where he traveled, and amazed all of the cadets to hear where he had been. First stationed across the UK, he later got relocated to India, and got more of his radio training. He explained that his Indian experience had been some of the best moments of his life, including flying over the Himalayas and Mount Everest!
Mr Ballâ€™s story inspired all of the cadets and NCOs, and was part of a great presentation team with his partner â€“ herself a wartime evacuee from Lewisham. We are grateful for his time, and look forward to a return visit!
