Squadrons Annual Presentation Evening____________________________________________________________________
At the end of May over 50 members of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets held a very special event.  No 621 (Carmarthen) Squadron, No2227 (Mid Gwendraeth) Squadron, and No2420 (Whitland and District) Squadron of the Air Cadets took part in a Joint Formal Inspection and presentation evening.  Whilst the three units have co-operated in other Air Cadet activities previously,this is the first time they have joined together on a formal occasion.

Special Guest of Honour was Officer Commanding, No 3 Welsh Wing, Wg Cdr Mike Stones.

The Salute and Inspection was carried out by Western Sector Commanding Officer, Squadron Leader Chris Ford, who expressed his appreciation of the cadets high standard of turnout.

Mrs Pam Passmore, West Wales Area Chaplain for the Air Cadets, carried out an enrolment ceremony for the newer cadets. Pam highlighted the importance of cadet service, and the continuing dedication and commitment of our armed forces.  She led an act of remembrance for those who have been killed or injured in service.

Refreshments were then served at 621 Squadron's headquarters at Picton Barracks in Carmarthen.  Cadets from all three units put on a demonstration of usual cadet activities for the benefit and to the delight of parents.

Activities undertaken by cadets in their normal routine include adventure training, aero-modelling, air experience flying, gliding, flight simulation and first aid.  The show was greatly appreciated by the parents, who indicated their generous and warm delight in experiencing the breath of activities offered by the Air Cadet Organization.
At the end of the evening Mike Stones presented awards to the cadets. Mike heaped praise on those taking part in the parade and highlighted the dedication and commitment of the staff and cadets and celebrating their achievements.  Mike remarked that the Air Cadet Organization is clearly the youth organization of first choice for most teenagers.  Special thanks went to the adult staff who made all of this possible.
Currently, Air Cadet Squadrons throughout West Wales are recruiting adult volunteers to serve as instructors, and members of civilian committees. Additionally, squadrons are recruiting young people aged between 13 and 17 years of age.
