CCF News

The RAF Section of the CCF at Heriot’s  came back from the National Air Squadron Trophy competition with a grand haul of four trophies including 2nd place overall. The competition involved parade drill, first aid, general and aircraft knowledge, and leadership amongst other skills. The team won both the aircraft recognition element and the parade drill on their way to beating 229 other CCF (RAF) Sections nationwide on only our second attempt at the competition. A fantastic achievement that represents an enormous amount of dedication and hard work.


The victorious team are pictured with Air Commodore Dawn McCafferty, the Commandant Air Cadets. Missing from the picture is Cadet Corporal Hugh Hetherington, who could not attend on the day but contributed enormously to the team’s success.
