Cadets from 121 ( Nuneaton ) Squadron and cadets from other units within the Warwickshire & Birmingham Wing got to meet Jessica Raine the star of the BBC period drama series ‘Call the Midwife'. The chance meeting with Jessica who plays Midwife Jenny in the hit series took place during filming of an episode to be shown as the Christmas special.
The youngsters met up with Jessica Raine when the cadets from the Warwickshire & Birmingham Wing were on an annual camp visit to the historic Chatham dockyard where the BBC were filming scenes for the series ‘Call the Midwife'.
The cadets were fascinated to be able to see the BBC film crew in action. Cadet Breanne Richter of 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron said, ”I just love the program and she's brilliant, when I found out Jessica was here I just had to get a photo with her. We had to wait some time for her to finish filming but I was amazed to see just how many people are involved in filming what will probably end up as a few seconds of the finished episode. I was so excited I don't know how I stayed quiet for so long. Thankfully Jessica came over to us as soon as she finished filming and we got our photo with her, how brilliant is that.”
