Band Badges but no Band?!

Band_Badges_1Four cadets from 1406 Squadron Air Training Corps (ATC) Spalding achieved almost the impossible recently – they received their “Band Badges” when the squadron does not actually have a band!

Through their own study, hard work, musical interest and obviously some talent they went were assessed by Wg Cdr Gil Singleton the Principal Director of Music, for Headquarters Air Cadets and awarded their cadet band badges for their musical performances.

The Wg Cdr was so impressed that he has asked Cdt Sgt Heather Stacey if she would like to be a “cadet solo act” as part of the musical arrangements he is working on for the Air Cadet 75th Anniversary event to be held at RAF Cranwell next August. The event is a singular honour for any cadet to be present, let alone to be performing as a solo act, and will mean Heather will be singing and playing in front of a crowd of over 3000 including VIPs!!

The squadron is very proud of their effort and that they have been duly rewarded with their badges, plus we hope that Cdt Sgt Stacey continues to show her musical talent.
