Another productive weekend at 859 Squadron. Saturday has seen five cadets successfully pass their No8 Rifle Weapons Handling Test (WHT) at RAF Leuchars. Meanwhile cadets were airborne at RM Condor with Cdt Graham and Cdt Hunking completing the Gliding Induction Course 1 (GIC1) syllabus.
Congratulations to Sgt Kirsty Wallace and Cdt Jamie Graham, both cadets achieved Corps Marksman awards on the L98A2 Cadet GP Rifle today. This is the highest marksmanship award attainable in the ATC and requires high levels of skill and accuracy. An outstanding achievement guys!
On final parade this evening the Officer Commanding formally promoted Cdt Joe Greenall to the rank of Cadet Corporal. This follows his participation in the recent JNCO Selection Board.
Well done Cpl Greenall, and good luck in your new role!
