Dedication reaps rewards

Recently we were joined by Wing Commander Pass and Sector Commander, Squadron Leader Bates for their annual formal inspection.

After spending the evening chatting with Officer Commanding 2418, Flying Officer Redwood, the staff team and the cadets, the Wing Commander presented some awards to the cadets and one very special award to the Squadron Warrant Officer.

4 CVQO B-TEC awards were handed out, along with CWO Hudson receiving his award as the best male sportsperson in South and East Midlands wing; recognition for all his hard work over the past year.

After 24 years of uniformed service, Squadron Warrant Officer (WO), WO Bates was awarded his second clasp to his cadet forces medal. On behalf of all at 2418 sir, huge congratulations and many thanks for all you have done for the squadron!
