On Saturday 25 July cadets and staff from the squadron deployed to the Scottish National Museum of Flight to assist with the 2015 East Fortune Air Show. Cadets and staff were involved in manning some of the aircraft exhibits and providing flight line crowd control. Everyone received time off from duties to enjoy some of the flying displays and exhibits.
Our very own CI Jack Mitchell (Squadron Leader Retired) and WO (ATC) Brian Robbins of 2345 Sqn were honoured recently for their outstanding service towards the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme.
At this years Gold presentation event held at the Palace of Holyroodhouse Jack and Brian were both presented with DofE Commendations celebrating a combined total of over 75 years volunteering with the Duke of Edinburgh's Award.
Their contribution towards DofE on 859 Sqn over the years has been immeasurable. A massive thank you from all the cadets and staff past and present!
