8th May 2015 was the 70th Anniversary of Victory in Europe Day 1945, and to celebrate, 2490 (Spen Valley) Squadron thought they would host a war-themed street party.

However bad weather and local flooding caused chaos with the barbecue and intermittent power cuts, but in true wartime spirit, we decided to Keep Calm and Carry On!

We improvised and ate our meal indoors, dressed in war-themed and patriotic attire, and our occasional electricity blackouts just added to the authentic wartime feel!

A lovely time was had by all, and the cadets learnt more about our country's history.
