A firm friendship is growing between Windermere's Air Cadets and Royal British Legion.

Cadets and legion members learned more about each other over tea and cake, with cadets explaining everything from shoe polishing techniques to drill commands, and legion members regaling cadets with tales of their military activities.

The cadets of 1264 (Windermere) squadron are the first non-school youth organisation in Cumbria to gain affiliated unit status, which allows them to work with the Windermere branch of the Royal British Legion on fundraising and community projects.

The air cadets meet every Tuesday and Thursday at their headquarters on Park Road, Windermere. To find out more visit www.raf.mod.uk/aircadets; email oc.1264@aco.local or phone 015394-88812 .
