ATC Sunday Parade - 01 Feb 2015

On Sunday 5 Feb 15, the Squadron will parade through Daventry as part of the Warwickshire & Birmingham Wing celebration of the anniversary of the formation of the Air Training Corps. The Corps was given Royal Warrant officially on 5 Feb 1941 and since then has grown from strength to strength to become one of the UKs most respected youth organisation.

As we are parading in the afternoon there will be NO NORMAL Sunday morning meeting.

Cadets attending the parade should meet at the Sqn for 1200hrs.

Uniform will be No 2 (Wedgewood Blues) including tie, jumper and beret. Females may wear trousers. It is highly advised to wear warm layers underneath your uniform. Cadets may wear a Civilian coat for travelling but this will be left on the minibus during the formal parade.

Return time: Cadets will return to the Sqn for approx. 1630hrs but they are reminded to take mobile phones to contact home when leaving Daventry.

Due to recent weather conditions - please check the website and facebook throughout the weekend for any updates / cancellations
