Recently, the squadron was extremely honoured to be visited by HM Lord-Lieutenant of Northamptonshire, Mr James Saunders Watson Esq and his wife Lizzie.

The visit was arranged by our own CWO Thomas, who for the last 12 months has been the Lord Lieutenant’s Cadet (LLC).

He very much enjoyed his visit which included, inspecting the Squadron upon arrival, seeing and engaging in some of the day-to-day activities the Royal Air Force Air Cadets has to offer. The evening concluded with various awards being presented on final parade.

Badges awarded by the Lord-Lieutenant included a number of Classifications and different Progressive Training Syllabus awards.

The Sqn OC also invited the Lord-Lieutenant to promote two of our Sgts. Congratulations to FS Speers and FS Turner, well deserved.

These awards concluded with the presentation of the Queens Platinum Jubilee Medals to uniformed staff members Flt Lt Colin Harmer (Sqn OC), Flt Lt Sean Kelly (Wing Shooting Officer), and WO Dominic Chisholm.

The night finished with CWO Thomas presenting the Lord-Lieutenant with a book of photo memories of his year serving as the LLC.

A great night was had by all.
