Civilian Committee Presidential Change

Nick Carter1406 Sqn Air Training Corps (Spalding) has had a change of President to their Civilian Committee. The out going President Air Commodore Nick Carter OBE MA RAF (Retd) has been in post for over 12 years having served for 32 years before retiring from HQ Logistics Command, RAF Brampton in 1994, but is sadly stepping down due to ill health.

Josh FortuneWing Commander Josh Fortune RAF is taking up the post. Josh commissioned into the Royal Air Force Engineer branch in April 2002 and has spent much of his career working with the RAF Tornado aircraft in the F3 and GR4 variants. He also undertook the Joint Service EOD course qualifying as a Conventional Munitions Disposal Officer and even served in the Falklands for a whole year. He has impressively also been the Senior Engineer Officer for the Royal Air Force Aerobatics Team – The Red Arrows.

1406 Sqn ATC, the staff, committee and cadets all bid a fond fair well, get well soon and thank you to Nick before welcoming Josh as the experienced addition to the Civilian Committee he will be for help and advice on Service matters.

Mrs NellThe squadron has also to say a big thank you but hopefully not farewell to Mrs Jo Nell who also stood down; she has been the Civilian Committee Treasurer since 2007 and a member of the Civilian Committee since 2003. Both her daughter Lucy, and son Charles, were active members of the squadron. Charles has since joined the RAF as a pilot and Lucy is currently a Medical Bursar studying at Leeds University. Jo and her husband both take a keen interest in orienteering and help out with transporting cadets to various events, both orienteering and inter-wing sports. We wish her well in all she does.
