Sandy Cadets Train To Gain

Cadet Practice WalkOn Sunday 2nd May, cadets from 22 (Sandy) Squadron spent the day honing their navigational skills in preparation for the upcoming Spitfire cadet march.

The cadets spent the morning refreshing their map reading skills, before setting out on a 20 kilometre walk. The route took the cadets through Sandy and around the outlying villages, passing through the disused Tempsford Airfield, which was used by the RAF to transport SOE agents into occupied Europe during WWII.

Cadet Sergeant Robert Hubbard commented, “The route was a good test of map reading skills. The early rain didn’t manage to dampen the mood of the cadets, who can’t wait for the Spitfire cadet march later this month”
