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.

The Royal British Legion was created to preserve the spirit of fellowship and service to others formed by all ranks and to maintain, in a strong, stimulating, united comradeship, all those who have served in H.M. Forces, or Auxiliary Forces or who are still serving so that neither their efforts nor their interests shall be forgotten; and that their welfare and that of the dependants of those who died in the service of their country may be safeguarded; and that just and equitable treatment shall be secured to them in respect of the difficulties caused in their lives as a result of their service.
