The Air Training Corps, one of our country’s most prestigious youth organisations, has just published its bi-annual report. Entitled Air Cadet Report 2015, it is an excellent 50-page booklet that captures the wide ranging activities that the 44,000 cadets in its 948 squadrons the length and breadth of the UK enjoy.
Produced to show the activities and opportunities available within Corps as a whole, the editorial naturally concentrates on the organisation and its activities and not on individual squadrons. However, ten squadrons get a personal mention in the booklet, with an accompanying photograph, either as a squadron or by having a cadet named.
But which is the only squadron to get a mention twice? Yes, that’s right, 42F (King’s Lynn). What’s more, both entries are accompanied with full page pictures. The squadron’s Commanding Officer Flight Lieutenant Pauline Petch said that this was yet another fantastic accolade for the young cadets of Lynn and West Norfolk villages who belong to the unit.
