Cadets Parade for Armed Forces Day
On Sunday, our Cadets paraded in Newark for Armed Forces Day. We’re extremely proud of their involvement and have received a lovely message from the Chairman, Newark Armed Forces Day Working Group 2023, WG CDR N G BRANSTON MBE RAF.
“My sincere thanks for the significant contribution made by the cadets of the Magnus Academy’s CCF on Sunday’s Newark Armed Forces Day parade. The participation of your cadets was impressive, and contributed significantly to the overall cadet forces present, and thus to the appearance and performance of the entire event. I have already received numerous very positive comments from members of the public (including quite a lot I didn’t even know). The Lord Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire was certainly extremely impressed – indeed, he specifically mentioned in his speech how good it was to see the CCF on this parade for the first time. The Town Mayor and other civic dignitaries involved, especially those who helped us with the inspection, also commented very favourably.
I was personally very proud of all the staff and cadets, and am grateful for the enthusiasm with which you and your cadets greeted the opportunity to be seen on the larger stage of AFD; you should all be very proud. Please pass on these expressions of gratitude to all those who were involved.
I hope you will be able to continue to support this annual event. I know that Kevin Winter, who will be Chairman next year for the Navy lead, will be grateful for all the help he can get.”
