Shooting Star!

Cadet Corporal Nick Fletcher of 1406 (Spalding) Squadron set his sights high when the Squadron went to Oakington to make use of their fantastic indoor rifle range. Cpl Fletcher had missed out previously on a marksman award of any sort, but the break taken away from shooting to concentrate on his Nijmegen training came up trumps.

Using his skills and determination saw Cpl Fletcher score the Squadrons highest result of the day with 500 out of a possible 600. That score also saw Cpl Fletcher achieve a well-deserved Regional Marksman award, the second achieved on the Squadron in as many months.

Sqn 2IC Flying Officer Angela Bone said, “It’s great to see the cadets achieving some great scores and gaining their various Marksman awards. Cadets are now getting closer to the Corps highest award the Corps marksman award, and competition is really heating up. “
