Sqn Ldr Bryan Coats said, “I am delighted to have been asked to present Taras with his Sergeants stripes. His promotion marks a significant development in his Air Cadet career as he moves up from junior NCO to Senior NCO. I am sure he will rise to the responsibilities and challenges of his new position on the Squadron”.
