Air Cadets Fly the Flag at Parachute Regiment Spectacular

Royal Air Force Air Cadets from 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron ‘Flew the Flag’ and 'Ran the Gun' at the recent Parachute Regiment Spectacular in Bedworth.

The Air Cadet Gun Team provided a demonstration of teamwork and discipline in the main arena as they conducted their demonstration using a scaled replica of the equipment traditionally used by the Royal Navy at the Royal Tournament since 1912.

The cadets also took part in the veterans parade and the Sunset Ceremony that marked the end of what can only be described as a very enjoyable and successful day despite all that the weather could throw at them.

Flt Lt Paul Hincks officer commanding 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron said, "This was a fantastic public relations opportunity for the Squadron and I would take this opportunity to thank all the Cadets, Staff and Civ Com members for their support”.

He added, “The cadets have all worked extremely hard to perfect what has proved to be a spectacular demonstration of teamwork, something we should all be proud of especially when you consider that this was the first time that many of the cadets had run the gun in public. We all had a fantastic day and the final parade by the members of the Parachute Regiment Association and Cadet Forces was a true spectacle of colour led by the Parachute Regiment Band and Parachute Regiment Association standards. I would take this opportunity to thank the members of the Bedworth Branch of the Parachute Regiment Association for their outstanding hospitality"
