Remembrance Sunday

On Sunday 9th November, Cadets and Staff from 22 (Sandy) Squadron took part in the annual Remembrance Parade and service held in Sandy.

With the parade forming up at Swan Lane in Sandy, the Cadet and Staff marched off with the parade to the War Memorial for a service of Remembrance.

At the Sandy War Memorial, Cadet Corporal Ian Mansion, 15, laid a wreath on behalf of the Squadron cadets and staff, and Cadet Corporal Peter Hessey, 15, was the Squadron banner bearer during the parade.

After the silence and the wreaths had been laid, the parade continued to the church for the service of remembrance. After the church service, the march past was taken by local dignitaries.

Cadet Corporal Peter Hessey commented, “Very proud to have carried the Squadron banner on parade today. It’s very important to remember those who gave their lives on our behalf”. 

Flying Officer Brian Storey RAFVR(T) said, “A fantastic effort by all the cadets on parade. They’ve all put a lot of effort preparing for the parade to pay respect to those who lost their lives for their country”.
During the weekend, the cadets were also out on the Saturday, collecting for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal at both Tesco and Budgens in Sandy.
