A FENLAND cadet’s tireless work has been rewarded with a promotion.

Cadet Corporal Ross Chadney, of 272 (Wisbech) Squadron, has been promoted to the rank of Cadet Sergeant in recognition of his academic skills and leadership ability.

Ross was presented with his rank slides on final parade by Officer in Charge, 272 (Wisbech) Squadron, Flying Officer Colin Arnold.

He said: “I can’t stop smiling. I am so pleased that I have reached the rank of Sergeant.”

This year he was the Squadron Cadet representative at the Wing Commanders dining out night and has also represented 272 at athletics and cross country.

He will lead the Drill Team at the Wing Field weekend.
