During the Passing Out Parade and Presentation Evening, a special award was made. This was the presentation of the inaugural silver Fletchers Arrow, modelled on a classic longbow arrow from the Agincourt era. Handcrafted from artisan components by a Master Fletcher, the arrow represents the core values of the Air Cadet Organisation and the Worshipful Company of Fletchers: straight and true, precisely and carefully created, and with the best support and resources possible.
The inaugural Arrow was presented by Master McMillan to Cadet Flight Sergeant Travis Tomlin, recognising his leadership of the Squadron’s NCO team, and his wider engagement with Region and Corps sport to inspire the Squadron’s cadets.
FS Tomlin was then promoted to Cadet Warrant Officer, in an official recognition of his role and responsibilities, to the wide acclaim of the Squadron’s cadets and family. Images from all the night’s presentations, and CWO Tomlin’s promotion and Arrow presentation can be found.
