Drill and Ceremonial
What's the point of drill and parade? You may think it doesn't have much to do with things like adventurous training, or leadership. That's not the case at all! It shows how disciplined and organised you can be as an individual, remembering instructions and carrying them out accurately. More importantly, it shows your ability to work in a team and is a way of displaying the high standards of dress and behaviour which air cadets are renowned for.
Take pride in those high standards and you could be chosen to assist Her Majesty's Lord Lieutenant on Civic and Royal duties and get to meet a number of very important people as a couple of our cadets have done in recent years! In recent years cadets from 1114 Squadron have been on parade to meet HM the Queen, Princes Phillip and Charles, and the Duchesses of Cornwall and Cambridge!
Work hard on your appearance and throw yourself into Air Cadet life and you may well find yourself on the lawns of Buckingham Palace like cadets from 1114 Squadron have done in the past!
