Mannock Air Cadets parade through Wellingborough

On Remembrance Sunday (13 November) a contingent of over 40 Air Cadets from 378 (Mannock) Squadron could be seen marching through their home town of Wellingborough along with the Royal British Legion, service organisations and veterans.   

The cadets, along with their adult volunteer instructors, were on parade to support the annual act of remembrance.  The parade was an opportunity for all of the gathered to observe a two-minute silence and witness the laying of wreaths to honour those that sacrificed their lives in two World Wars and later conflicts.  Cadet Sergeant Charlie Dufty laid a wreath on behalf of Mannock Squadron and Cadet Maariya Junjua laid a wreath on behalf of the Muslim Association of Wellingborough.

Leading the Air Cadets on the day, Flying Officer Phil Warr said: “Today’s parade is an opportunity for our cadets and staff to remember and reflect upon the heroism of those members of our armed forces and allies.

“We are of course very proud of the turnout of our cadets and pleased to see the event so well supported by the local community.”
