As is the tradition at 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron, the last parade of the year is always a time to let our hair down and have a bit of a laugh.
So on Friday 18th December, the last parade of the year, the cadets decided to put their thespian talents to the test by holding a ‘Sods Opera’ instead of having a normal training session.
So in the best of military traditions the Cadets and Staff took it in turns to enact their own parts of the show. The Squadron’s staff going back in time to WWII to perform their comedic sketch, based on that of Armstrong and Miller’s British Airmen when they were captured by the Germans. Having totally lowered the standards and completely embarrassed themselves the staff called upon the cadets to play out their musical and comedy acts.
Flt Lt Paul Hincks Officer Commanding 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron said, “All said and done everyone had a really good night, an excellent way for the Squadron to say a smashing goodbye to yet another successful year of Air Cadet activities”.
He added, “We’ve all worked extremely hard this year and I think everyone deserves a well-earned rest over the Christmas & New Year holidays. So here’s hoping that all members of 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron have a brilliant time during the holiday. Hopefully we should all be suitably refreshed in time for the first parade of 2015 on Tuesday 5th January.”
