Corby Air Cadets Celebrate 75th Anniversary of the ATC

422 Wing 75th Parade

On Sunday 10th July 2016, ten Air Cadets from 422 (Corby) Squadron, Royal Air Force Air Cadets, attended the South and East Midlands Wing 75th Anniversary Parade in Leicester City Centre.

The parade, with over 300 cadets and staff from around the Wing, started at Humberstone Gate and worked its way around to Leicester Cathedral with 5F (Northampton) Squadron band leading the parade.

After the parade, a church service commenced at Leicester Cathedral, followed by refreshments for both staff and cadets.

Cadet Warrant Officer Joseph Samuels-Hammond was lucky enough to be a part of the drum laying ceremony inside the church, which looked very smart alongside the Wing Banner.

Sergeant Hannah Eden said, “The parade was a very nice and successful event. It was great being able to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the ATC, and I’m very proud to have been a part of it.”
