1082 Squadron Turns 80!

This week on Tuesday 2nd March, 1082 (Brimington & District) Squadron turned 80! Throughout the month social media will have various pictures to celebrate this great milestone. The Squadron are also researching more into the history of the Squadron and are on the look out for past members and especially any founding members or family of founding members who may be able to share their story with us.

(Please email Sgt Esther Taylor on training.1082@rafac.mod.gov.uk if you have any history that you would like to share)

The Squadron has had many young people and adult volunteers pass through their doors and a lot of those say that without the Squadron, and experiences gained throughout their time, no matter how long or short, they would not be the person they are today.

This past 12 months has been very difficult for our young people but they have persevered with all the challenges thrown at them achieving all that they can although be it virtually.

This year has seen the loss of a few cadets as well as our Commanding Officer Flt Lt Fowler who stood down from the role at the end of February. We all would like to wish Flt Lt Fowler well and look forward to working with him in the future.

All in all I feel that 1082 Sqn has been an amazing support to many young people and volunteers. Please keep a look later in the year for the history project to be shared with you all.

We wish you all well and hope you stay safe during these uncertain times.
