Askern Squadron recently saw a promotion of a different kind for their Officer in Command, Sergeant Paterson, was promoted to Flight Sergeant.
Flight Sergeant Paterson was officially promoted to Flight Sergeant by Squadron Leader Iain Kirk, Sector 2 commander for South and West Yorkshire Wing at a recent Squadron commanders meeting for the Sector. The promotion is a reflection of both his dedication to Askern Air Cadets, who he has been a member of staff with for a number of years, both as an NCO and Civilian Instructor, and his many years of previous service within the Armed Forces.
Squadron Leader Kirk said “It is always nice to promote cadets, but it is an honour to be able to promote a member of staff. Well done George”
About his promotion, FS Paterson said “I am not going to tell my cadets yet, I will wait and see if any of them notice the different rank slides. I wonder how long it will take?”
