A POPULAR air cadet squadron has launched a new campaign in order to bolster its ranks with new recruits.
The 1211 Swadlincote squadron has launched the recruitment drive in a bid to expand to its award-winning group of 13 to 15 year olds.
As cadets have grown up and left, numbers have begun to dip, so squadron leaders are on the look out for a range of different people to join.
Squadron commander Alyn Thompson said: “We are having an incredibly successful year so far and have had cadets travelling to camps at Swynnerton, near Stoke and to RAF Oldham where they have flown in Chinook helicopter. Several have gone overseas to Singapore, Gibraltar and Canada.
Squadron training officer Ruth Morgan said: “We offer an amazing array of activities for our young people.”
