432 20160629_204706Civilian Instructor Mr Peter Watson-Brown, from 432 (Woodbridge)Squadron, has been awarded a Commandant’s Commendation for Meritorious Service.

Joining the Air Cadet Organization in May 2004 Mr Watson-Brown has continued to serve on No 432 (Woodbridge) Squadron ever since. Aside from supporting his squadron, Pete has enthusiastically participated in all Wing related adventure training activities. He has been particularly committed to ensuring that the cadets serving on No 432 (Woodbridge) Squadron have every opportunity to fully participate in as many adventure training related activities as possible and, in order to achieve this, he has trained for and developed important and related skills such as canoeing and mountain leadership.

Pete has also helped organize and run a number of intensive week-long Wing Adventure Training Camps where he has actively, and enthusiastically, been a leading light in developing cadet, and staff, adventure training skills. Recently with his support and drive, the Wings paddle sport weekend was a success, providing training and assessment to cadets and staff.

Peter Watson-Brown has a particularly impressive and positive attitude towards the staff and cadets he works with and, through his obvious commitment and force of personality, he has been able to ensure that they get the very best from his training and are able to develop important skills which are not only of value during their time in the Corps but also of value in later life. Pete continues to provide an exceptional level of support and training for the cadets of No 432 (Woodbridge) Squadron and Norfolk & Suffolk Wing and his extraordinary contribution to No 432 (Woodbridge) Squadron and the Air Training Corps, is both impressive and worthy of formal recognition.

Flt Lt Simon Turner, OC 432 (Woodbridge) squadron said “Pete is a dedicated and impressive Civilian Instructor who has served the Air Cadet Organization loyally for many years and is a member of staff who can be totally relied upon. The staff, and more importantly, the cadets, have all benefited greatly from having him on the squadron”.
