Cadets rise to the challenge to scoop prizes.

NUNEATON Air Cadets scooped first place in four prestigious competitions as more than 500 cadets converged on Bramcote Barracks for an activity day.

Cadets from 121 (Nuneaton) Squadron Air Training Corps, together with contingents from 26 other Air Cadet units within the Warwickshire and Birmingham Wing, assembled at Bramcote for the annual training day and review.

Competitive events included the band competition, drill, first aid, public relations, marksmanship, aircraft recognition, modelling and sports.

The Nuneaton Squadron's first aid and aircraft recognition teams performed well in their events, and the cadets also took first place in the band competition for the second year running.

The Squadron's Corporate Communications team also managed to pull off a clean sweep in the public relations competitions by winning the award for best PR coverage during 2004, the photographic competition and the award for best promotional video.

Flight Lt Paul Hincks said: "Our success in this event is largely attributable to the support and coverage we have received from local press over the past year."

The band and communications team will now go forward to regional competitions at RAF Wittering in September.

RAF Inspector of Recruiting, Group Captain Dawn McCafferty, presented the awards. She said: "It is a tribute to the organisation that so many people give up so much of their time to stage such an event."
