More than 50 members of the 1220 (March) squadron air training corps attended an annual formal dinner.
Staff and cadets sat down to eat a four course meal at their dining-in-night hosted at the Conservative Club in March.
After dinner, flight sergeant Ewan MacRae invited attendees to give a loyal toast and then the officer commanding, flight lieutenant Kirsty Burnham, gave a speech which included welcoming new members of the squadron.
Many years ago, the squadron was given a set of submariner’s dolphins by an ex-cadet who is now an officer in the Royal Navy.
Each year these are presented to a cadet who has done something significant that involved water.

This year’s recipient was Cpl Liam Hill who at a recent swimming competition was the only cadet in the senior boys team who managed to come second overall.
It was also a time to ‘dine out’ anyone who had left the squadron during the previous twelve months.
