CCF Passed with Flying Colours!
For the Biennial Review the Aldenham and Queens' School cadets were inspected by Sqn Ldr Coupland, 2i/c RAF CCF at RAF Cranwell. Starting with a parade at 12 noon, the Sqn Ldr spent time speaking with every single cadet before joining in a group photograph.
A carousel of activities followed the lunch, including shooting, navigation lessons led by RAF cadets, a visit to the flight simulator and a field craft lesson led by the army section who got the recruits to prepare meals from 24-hour operational ration packs. Parents, staff and cadets assembled on Top Field at the end of the afternoon for the set piece - a demonstration of a compound clearance with medical evacuation.
At Final Parade, the Sqn Ldr congratulated the strength of the unit and the enthusiasm of the cadets and staff. The report that followed showed that the unit had passed the inspection with flying colours.
