Air training corps leaders become cadets for a night.

Air Cadets from 1064 (Honiton) Squadron Air Training Corps took part in a ‘rank raffle’ to win the opportunity to take command of the squadron for a night.

The cadets who won the various ranks were required to plan the evening’s events and take total command of the squadron.

Staff members become air cadets for the night, having to fall in to the squad and be given instructions.

A spokesperson for the squadron said; “This sort of event is generally designed for fun, but it also lets the young people gain valuable leadership experience.”

Young people can find out more about joining the squadron by calling (01404) 43286.
