Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wing Air Cadets
Battle of Britain Service
Battle of Britain Sunday was recognised by 11 cadets from 1391 (Romsey) Squadron who joined the RAF Association and congregation at the United Reform Church in the town for the annual Battle of Britain Service.
The cadets formed a guard of honour leading into the church for the mayor of Romsey and Test Valley.
During the service which was led by Rev’d Terry Hinks, who is also the Squadron Padre, three of the cadets gave a short presentation on what being an air cadet is about.
Following the service the cadets spoke with members of the congregation about their individual experiences within the cadets.
This followed on from the assistance the cadets had given RAFA with their Wings Appeal the previous day in the town centre raising an impressive £390.
