We were extremely pleased to welcome a number of members of the Air Training Corps (Durham/Northumberland Wing) to our annual camp again this year. Led by Flt Lt Nigel Yarrow all cadets were fully integrated into the ACF star groups and undertook the same training as their Army Cadetcolleagues. This included the ATC NCOs instructing all cadets within their cadre group.
For the Air Cadets a highlight was becoming qualified, following appropriate training, to engage in blank firing the L98A2 rifle whilst on exercise. Wing Commander Harris and Squadron Leader Miller visited the cadets and heard at first hand what a success their camp had been. At final parade all were presented with the Commandant's coin.
Thank you Durham/Northumberland Wing for sending us such fine cadets, and we look forward to seeing you again at camp next year. For NACF we are excited that some of our cadets may be able to join the ATC camp this Autumn.
