First Aid Corps Level Medals

corps_firstaidWritten by Cadet Warrant Officer Andy Oxby:

Six cadets of 1406 Squadron Air Training corps (ATC) travelled this month to Beckingham Camp, near RAF Cranwell, the location for the Air Cadet National First Aid Competition in which they were representing our region, Central and East, along with the teams from 5F Northampton Squadron.

The competition was held on a Saturday, despite the nervousness suffered by the cadets and this being the first time our cadets had reached the national level for a number of years.

On the Saturday night, the results were revealed… our Young Adult Team consisting of FS Lockie and CWO Oxby placed second in their competition (wearing medals in the photo), with 5F placing first and our Youth Team consisting of Cadets Avery, Sharp, Chew and Shields narrowly missing out on medals coming fourth with 5F coming second, so not only did we as a squadron do well, as a region we all did fantastic!

This being our cadet’s first national level competition, we were incredibly proud of their achievements before they had even competed! We could not be more proud of what they achieved and the results of their hard work.
