Good Effort and Promotion at Swimming Competition

cadetwarrantofficer A number of our cadets have recently took part in the annual wing swimming competition held at the Peterborough regional swimming pool.

As always our cadets put in a very good performance with an overall medal total of 5 including 2 Bronze, 2 Silver and 1 Gold, even though this wasn’t quite enough to come away with any of the main trophies for the event the cadets should be justifiably proud of their achievements.

It was also a big night for the team manager as he was awarded a promotion to Cadet Warrant Officer in front of the assembled squadrons. A rare achievement for the squadron, its been 12 years since the rank was seen at 1406 Sqn and we congratulate Andy on a well deserved and earned promotion to the highest rank achievable for cadets within the organisation (image above).

Cadet Warrant Officer Andy Oxby said after the event “It has been a brilliant night for me, to be able to see the cadets from my squadron all do so well in the competition and to be so proud of themselves and then to be rewarded for my own hard work by getting promoted”
