Every two years the CCF Contingent is formally inspected by the Ministry of Defence to ensure that the cadet experience is up to scratch.
On Wednesday Air Commodore McCaffery CBE, who is in charge of all air cadets in the country, visited RGS to determine if this was the case. Despite the inclement weather, the Air Commodore saw a wide range of activities and spoke to the cadets about their experiences so far in each CCF Section, and their future plans. During her visit, she saw RGS cadets demonstrating leadership and resilience in their activities which the Air Commodore specifically mentioned as being so important in the modern world, along with the benefits of being a cadet. In her closing remarks, she described the Contingent as ‘thriving with happy cadets’, which was very pleasing.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the officers of the Contingent, and the Senior NCOs who have led their Sections this year, and for their commitment and involvement since Year Nine. Without their continued enthusiasm and dedication, the Contingent would not be as successful as it is.
