Deal ATC 2235 Squadron Camp.

Branch Youth Liaison Officer Stuart Gemmell sent the following report and photographs from the August 2019 Summer Camp.

Please find photos of this year Air Cadets summer camp at RAF Leeming. 30 Air Cadets from across Kent (two from Deal), visited the station last week for seven day’s of Air Force life, learning what it takes to become an Airman or Woman. The Cadets visited the stations Air Traffic, fire section, police section, RAF Regiment and had the chance to taxi Hawk trainer aircraft onto the runway before a training flight. Cadet Spencer Hall, of Deal 2235 Sqn, won the most sought-after prize of all Camp Best Cadet for exceptional attitude and a great sense of humour throughout the week. 

Cadet Spencer Hall, Deal 2235 Sqn Camp Best Cadet, well done Spenc!


Do NOT pull the trigger!

                       …only if you promise to bring it back!


THE Deal “Team” Standing on runways is not a good idea!

(Is that a smile of fear, relief or delight Stuart!!)

Thank You Stuart for a great report and photo’s 



Members and families gathered in Dover Town Hall Friday 19th July to pay tribute to the hard work and training carried by the cadets of TS Lynx. Many a well earned trophy’s and certificates were presented to many of the cadets in the unit by Dover Town Mayor, White Cliffs Branch Chairman, senior area RN Cadet officers and yours truly.
This was Sarah Butler’s last evening as she has been promoted to the RN Cadet District team.                       A rather tearful Sarah saying goodbye after watching a very touching film in her honour presented by the Cadets.

My thanks to Janet Barkway for her lovely photograhs
