Field Day Success for Nuneatonís Air Cadets

The Warwickshire and Birmingham Wing Field Day at Gamecock Barracks is a big event for all the cadets and staff of 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron, when they finally get the chance to put all their hard work and training to the test by taking part in a wide variety of different competitions.

The 121 Squadrons first aid and aircraft recognition teams performed well in their events and the drill team put on a magnificent display, something to be proud of.

The highlight of the day for the cadets and staff of 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron came during the final parade as Central and East Regional Commandant, Group Captain Brett Morrell RAFR, presented them with Certificates and trophies for taking first place in the Public Relations, Photographic and Media Design competitions. The Squadrons drummers also came first in the percussion section of the Band Competition.

Group Captain Brett Morrell presents 121 Squadron’s Corporal Justin Allan with the Band Competition Percussion Section Award. Justin and his brother Alan worked together to arrange the routine and train the other drummers who pulled off the winning performance.

Flight Lieutenant Paul Hincks of 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron said, "We have done extremely well in the Media Communications arena again this year, with much of our success being attributable to the outstanding coverage given to the Squadron's activities by local community newspapers. I am also delighted to see that our bands percussion section is keeping the Squadron's fine musical reputation alive by making it through to the regional competition again this year. I would like to congratulate all the cadets who took part today and the adult staff that helped to train them. Every cadet who took part should be justly proud of his or her performance and I hope we can repeat our success when we compete at the regional championships in SeptemberĒ.
