On Tuesday 19th January, the Trowbridge branch of the Royal Air Forces Association awarded their prize for ‘Best Cadet’ in their area to Cadet Sergeant Alice Wynne of 2196 (Trowbridge) Squadron ATC.
As well as representing her squadron and wing in numerous sports, Sgt Wynne is a flight commander and recently qualified as a Master Cadet. Last year she participated in a prestigious International Air Cadet Exchange to the Netherlands, and later this year she and her sister, Cadet Corporal Caitlin Wynne, will be taking part in a cross-channel swim by a team of ten Air Cadets to mark the 75th Anniversary of the Air Training Corps.
The prize was presented to Sgt Wynne by Air Vice Marshal Martin Clark RAF CB, President of the RAFA Trowbridge branch.
This year Dorset Wilts Wing of the Air Training Corps won the Millennium Peace Sword for Duke of Edinburgh Awards.
