On the morning of 21st May the cadets and staff of 2388 (Castleford) squadron helped support the veterans and paid their respects for the 219 who gave their lives in Bomber Command in the Second World War, at the annual memorial service for 578 Squadron at Selby Abbey.

The cadets provided a guard of honour at Selby Abbey when the Veterans entered.  Following this they attended Selby cemetery to provide another guard of honour, and three wreaths were laid in honour of those who died.

Castleford Air Cadets are still recruiting new members at their squadron!  If you are in years 8 to 10 and want to learn to fly a plane, shoot rifles, take part in their Duke of Edinburgh awards - amongst many other activities please contact the squadron at
