During February the Officer Commanding Cumbria and Lancashire Wing, Wing Commander Steve Molloy, visited 967 (BAe Warton) Squadron to conduct the Squadron’s Annual Formal Inspection. It was a great night as the Wing Commander saw fit to award the Squadron a 7; the highest possible mark.
During the evening, the Cadets took part in a usual programme of activities including building model gliders, painting models for Wing Training Day, preparing a newsletter for the annual dinner and running a radio exercise. Wing Commander Molloy inspected the Cadets and took time to speak to everyone, both on Parade and during their evenings activities.
This wasn’t the first 7 that the Squadron has received, in fact it is the second year running. OC Wing expressed his pleasure:
967 BAe Warton Squadron has yet again attained the maximum achievable score of 7. Its an excellent achievement for the staff and Cadets, its an impressive achievement to score 7, but far more so to keep it!
The Squadron’s Commanding Officer, Flight Lieutenant Steve Faulkner proudly said:
I am delighted that the Wing Commander can see the effort put into shaping the Squadron each year. Through the commitment and dedication of the staff team and senior Cadet NCOs of the Squadron we are constantly able to develop the Squadron whilst continuing to maintain our high standards. I am immensely proud of the staff, Cadets and Squadron and we have set ourselves the challenge of maintaining these standards through 2013.
