Friday 12th December saw the Passing Out Parade of Recruit Intake 03/14, the Squadron’s largest and most successful intake by far. Twenty six new cadets completed an impressive parade, before taking their cadet promise, and being formally presented with their Record of Service books to join the Squadron.
In front of parents, friends and family, their achievements and successes were celebrated and an impressive turn around in their skills and standards since they joined the training in September.
Four recruits were presented with awards for their training skill. Cdt Nathan Singh earned recognition for the Best Uniform standards, while Cdt Dmitri Madden won praise for the Best Drill. Cadet Rishi Ramphul was rewarded for the greatest improvement, and Cdt Teni Dada became the Best Recruit of the 03/14 Intake. Congratulations to all our recruits, and the prize winners, for their amazing success, and to Cadet Sergeant Archie Forster and Dhanyshen Ramen for their professionalism in steering this intake through to completion.
The Squadron also celebrated various cadet classifications and awards earned in the last three months. These awards were presented by Master Andrew McMillan, of the Worshipful Company of Fletchers, who are affiliated to the cadet Squadron, and included several new Master and Instructor cadet classifications, ten Youth First Aid Awards, and a BTEC in Uniformed Public Services at Distinction* level to Cadet Sergeant Dominic Paul.
