Studley Remembrance Parade Sunday 14th November 2010

Lest we forget..

Air Cadets from 480 (Studley) Squadron Air Training Corps participated in the annual Remembrance Parade, held on Sunday 14th November 2010. The parade also included members of the Royal British Legion and other youth organisations based within Studley.

The Air Cadets, led by members of the Royal British Legion, marched from their Pool Road headquarters around the village to the Cenotaph in the high street, where Cadet Allum and Sergeant Allum were waiting to receive the parade and oversee the ceremony as static armed guards.

The banner party led, by Sergeant Harris and escorted by Cadet Bennett and Corporal Allely, did a sterling job parading the Squadron Standard to and from the Cenotaph and Sergeant Harris showed great skill and carried out the banner drill perfectly.

Sergeant Harris said “It was a real honour leading the banner party and a great way to show my appreciation for those soldiers, sailors and airmen past and present”.

Corporal Edwards laid the wreath and gave the salute to the fallen. The Senior Officer; Squadron Leader Doug Martin said “Corporal Edwards did a fantastic job laying the wreath and his salute was impeccable. He is a credit to the Squadron and to Drill Instructor; Warrant Officer Tim Lloyd”.

The Squadron received many great comments throughout the day from the public and spent the weekends leading up to the parade raising money for the Poppy Appeal in Studley.

The Officer Commanding 480 Squadron, Flight Lieutenant Mark Hulme, said “Almost the whole Squadron turned out for the parade and really did themselves and me proud. All were smart, marched well and showed a great understanding of the significance and solemnity of the day”.
