Instructor Cadet Warrant Officer Gethin Davies, formerly
of 499 (Port Talbot) Sqn of the RAF Air Cadets, was
commissioned as a Lieutenant on passing out of the Royal
Military College at Sandhurst on 12 April 13. Gethin
was awarded the highest honour possible on graduating at
Sandhurst, the coveted Commandant's Sword of Honour.
This is a
remarkable achievement as whist he was a cadet with 499
(Port Talbot) squadron Gethin was awarded the
Sword in 2009. The Dacre Sword is presented
annually to the best male cadet in the Air Training
Corps. To be the holder of two swords of honour is
a remarkable achievement for anyone.
