Woodbridge Air Cadets Win Again


Air Cadets from 432 (Woodbridge) Squadron Secured first place in Norfolk and Suffolk Wing, Air Training Corps, annual Wing Field Competition last weekend.

Eight Cadets from Woodbridge competed against 28 teams from other Squadrons from all over Norfolk and Suffolk in various activities including Archery, Aircraft Recognition, Orienteering, Field-craft, Raft Building and First Aid.

It was a magnificent performance by the team and they successfully retained the trophy which they won in last year’s Event.

Cadet Flight Sergeant Philip Parish said ‘It’s been a brilliant weekend and the cadets have really enjoyed the competition. It was my first time in charge of the team, and now we’ve won the competition 3 times over the past 4 years. It’s a great achievement by all”.

Officer Commanding 432 Squadron, Flight Lieutenant Simon Turner, was once again very proud of the team for all their hard work and effort, and also offered thanks to all the staff at the Squadron who give up their free time to help train the cadets throughout the year.

Congratulations also go out to Ipswich Squadron who came second, Stowmarket Squadron in third place and our good friends at Felixstowe Squadron who came in fifth place this year.

The win at the Wing Field Competition comes a month after successfully obtaining first place at the Suffolk Cadet Challenge where the team competed against Woodbridge School Combined Cadet Force, Army Cadets, Sea Cadets, Scouts and Police Cadets in various activities held at the Woodbridge School.
