Rank Swapping Air Cadets

Nuneaton based Royal Air Force Air Cadets did something completely different for one night only, when they Swapped Ranks with their Officers and NCO's.

The cadets from 121 ( Nuneaton ) Squadron had the chance to see what it was like to run their own parade as they swapped places with the Squadron adult staff and Cadet NCO's.

The more junior members of the Squadron jumped at the chance of becoming an NCO, the Squadron Warrant Officer or an Officer and in the case of Cadet Kyle Evans the top slot as Officer Commanding 121 Squadron.

Having received his ‘for one night only' promotion to Flight Lieutenant, Kyle Evans went on to lead the Squadron parade supported by many of his fellow cadets who had also received temporary elevation to the higher ranks.

Flight Lieutenant Evans said, “It's been a really fun night and it was a real change for us to turn the tables on the Staff and make them do the drill. I even got to wear the CO's funny hat and we also managed to raise some money for the Squadron funds.”
