2391 (Parkstone) Squadron provide Radio Safety Net for RAFWARMA

Once again cadets and staff from 2391 have been able to supply a Radio Safety Net for the RAFWARMA 2-day marches held at RAF Cosford each year.

This year proved more challenging after the loss of our usual Control Center and the re-siting of a major checkpoint on Day 2.

Thanks to one of our Service Instructors, Sgt (RAF) Finnigan we were able to re-locate to No.1 Radio School which proved to be a better site for us.

To top off the weekend the AOC visited the Control Center to congratulate the cadets on their skills and performance.

We have already received and invite to return next year.

A big “Well Done” to the whole team.

Visit to RFA Tidespring
Cadets from 2391 (Parkstone) Squadron were given the opportunity of a visit to RFA Tidespring while she is docked in Portland.
 
RFA Tidespring is a Tide-class replenishment tanker of the British Royal Fleet Auxiliary (RFA).
 
Tidespring is the first of a fleet of four 39,000 tonne Tide-Class tankers, capable of carrying up to 19,000 cubic metres of fuel (19 million litre bottles of cola) and 1,400 cubic metres of fresh water.
 
The cadets toured the whole ship from the Bridge to the flight deck and everywhere between with no lifts in sight but lots of stairs.
 
Special thanks must go to 3rd Officer Jack Scoble for organising and hosting the visit and also the Captain for allowing the visit.
 
Thanks also to the other Officers and staff that made the cadets welcome.
