Cadet Lauren Kayll, a pupil at John Bentley School in Calne is in cloud nine having just gained promotion to Cadet Corporal at 2189 (Calne) Squadron, Royal Air Force Air Cadets, following the successful completion of the Cadet Development Course.
However, promotion is not just down to attending the course, to be considered for promotion, a cadet needs to show drive and determination and a willingness to challenge themselves.
Cdt Kayall has demonstrated this by attending Air Experience Flying, completing Youth First Aid training, attending field craft sessions and taking part in sporting activities, representing the Squadron at Wing level.
In addition she has taken on Banner training with the Womens Section of the Royal British Legion and taken part in several fund raising activities for organisations such as the Royal Air Force Association (RAFA) and the Royal British Legion (RBL).
As a stalwart member of the squadronâ€™s Cadet Non Commissioned Officer Team (NCO) she plays a key role in being a role model for the junior cadets.
Commanding Officer Squadron Leader Mike Webster said â€œOn behalf of the staff and cadets of 2189 Calne Sqn, I would like to congratulate Cadet Lauren Kayll on her promotion to the rank of cadet Corporalâ€. He went onto say, â€œShe can be depended upon to support all the activities undertaken by the cadetsâ€.
