Cadets’ parade remembers the Fallen
EARLIER this month, 70 cadets and staff from 422 (Corby) Squadron Royal Air Force Air Cadets attended a Remembrance parade organised by the Corby branch of the Royal British Legion.
The parade, led by Corby Air Cadet’s Squadron Commander Flight Lieutenant Kev Ritchie RAFVR(T), moved from 422’s headquarters to the cenotaph at St John the Baptist Church in Corby Old Village.
The Reverend Paul Frost, Corby Squadron’s Chaplain, led the ceremony and some 50 wreaths were placed – among them 422’s wreaths laid by Cadet Corporal Eleanor Walvin and Cadet William Rhodes.
Later, all were invited back to the Ex-Serviceman’s Club for a trophy presentation to the youth organisation that raises the most towards the Poppy Appeal. For the second year running, after raising £1,500, 422 squadron cadets were presented with the L/Cpl James Ashworth VC trophy by Kerry Ashworth. Collecting the trophy on the Squadron’s behalf was Cadet Corporal Eve Pavitt.
