On the 15th March 2002, Cadets and staff from all three branches
of the cadet forces operating within the Nuneaton area joined members
of the Royal British Legion at the Nuneaton & Stockingford branch
of the Royal British Legion in Coton Road for what was to be a very
special occasion for all concerned.
Traditionally the Sea, Army and Air Cadet units and the Royal British
Legion have worked together to ensure that many local community
events such as the Remembrance day parade and the RBL poppy appeal
collections have been a success.
In order to develop an even closer relationship between the cadet
force units and the Royal British Legion the respective organisations
have now entered into an Agreement of Affiliation. In doing so the
Nuneaton & Stockingford branch of the Royal British Legion and
121 (Nuneaton) Squadron Air Training Corps have agreed to provide
mutual support, encouragement and where practicable help in achieving
the aims and objectives of both organisations.
Representatives of both the Royal British Legion and 121 (Nuneaton)
Squadron Air Training Corps exchanged formal Affiliation certificates
in order mark what was quite a memorable occasion.
As far as we are aware 121 is only second Air Training Corps Squadron
to be granted the honour of formal Affiliation with a branch of
the Royal British Legion.
We would take this opportunity to thank the members of the Nuneaton
& Stockingford branch of the Royal British Legion for entering
into this Agreement of Affiliation and look forward to working with
them in the future.
