On the 11th March Wing Warrant Officer Shaun McCarthy ran a course at RAF Odiham as part of the Wing Training Weekend to support both staff and cadet Non Commissioned Officers to convert from the Air Training Corps own drill manual to the Royal Air Force drill manual, AP818.

The day included a number of presentations and lots of practical. Warrant Officer McCarthy said "It was important to get this day in now so that all the staff and cadets have the opertunity to get this new manual embedded before our Wing Activities Day drill cometition later in the year."

One of the course attendees commented. "This has really helped me. It's one thing to read the book another to get a chance to practice and to watch others. I've got it in my head now and will be able to teach my Squadron the changes."

It is hoped another such day can be run later in the year for those not available.
