Air cadets at the forefront of Wisbech Remembrance Day parade

CADETS and staff from 272 Squadron Air Cadets took part in Sunday’s Remembrance Parade and service in Wisbech town centre.

The newly reformed Combined Corps of Drums led the parade through the town to the cenotaph where a short service was held and wreaths were laid.

The parade was then inspected by the Mayor of Wisbech and the Corps of Drums marched back to the Sandyland Headquarters.

Cadet Corporal Ross Chadney was proud to be a member of the band which was made up of the Sea Cadet Corps, Army Cadet Force and Air Training Corps.

The 16-year-old said: “I really enjoyed playing in the Combined Corps of Drums. This is the best band that Wisbech has had in a long time.”

The band led veterans and other uniformed organisations including the Sea Cadets, Army Cadets, Girls Venture Corps, St Johns Ambulance Cadets, Scouts and Guides.

Cadet Corporal Jeremy Stone, aged 18, laid the wreath for the Air Cadets while Flight Sergeant Oli Grocott, aged 17, carried their banner.
