Flight Lieutenant Paul Hincks, Officer Commanding 121 Squadron, said, “We have now received the final results for this year’s Warwickshire & Birmingham Wing Field Day and it gives me the greatest of pleasure to announce that 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron came home in 4th position in the overall competition, how good is that.”
“Out of 26 Squadrons within the Wing we came 4th and it’s all down to the hard work and effort of all the cadets who represented their Squadron and the staff who help to make it all possible”.
“This is a real achievement for us, we came 7th last year and against such stiff opposition from much larger Squadrons than ourselves, to be able to have reached 4th place this year shows that the teamwork and commitment of our cadets really produces the results”.
“It’s true to say that every single cadet who took part did an outstanding job and they should all justifiably feel proud of their achievements in all the competitive events”.
Massive congratulations to everyone, both cadets and Staff, who put so much effort into the weeks of preparation and put on such a good show during the day. You all did yourselves and your Squadron proud and no one can ask any more than that”.
