Wing Field Day Results

The Warwickshire and Birmingham Wing Field Day was held at Gamecock Barracks, Bramcote, on Sunday 13 June. All the squadrons of the wing were competing, in the presence of AOC 22 (Training) Group, Air Vice-Marshal Mark Green RAF.

The squadron managed 'third' places in both the Senior Modeling and Diorama competitions. Cdt Coles's entry was a model of a De Havilland 'Mosquito' B Mk IV, painted in the colours of 627 Sqn. The diorama, which had to based on the theme 'The RAF in the Central and East Region', represented two of the world's most famous flying units - both of which have been based at RAF Scampton, Lincolnshire - 617 (The Dambusters) Sqn, and The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team (The Red Arrows). Teams were also entered for the Aircraft Recognition and First Aid competitions.

The Drill Team came in at a very respectable 6th place, lead by CWO Dalton who achieved 4th Place in the NCOs competition.

The big surprise came during the Final Parade and presentations, when it was announced that 84 Squadron had achieved 'Best Academic Squadron' in the Wing.

On behalf of the Cadets, I'd like to thank the staff for all the effort that has been put in to the training programme this year. And on behalf of the staff, our congratulations to the cadets on their results.
