Following Wing band practices and the Barry Buddon music camp, Cdt FS Lowe and Cdt Smith were selected to play at Edinburgh's Beating the Retreat. With Lowe playing trombone and Smith on the cymbals, the two Aycliffe cadets joined others from the area to perform at Edinburgh's Castle and Royal Palace to Lord Lieutenants, Group Captains and other dignitaries. Dressed in No. 1s, the pair smartly represented their squadron. Cdt FS Lowe, who was attending for the second year, described the trip as, 'a very good experience'.
