CORBY AIR CADETS ASSIST AT WW1 RELATIVES’ TEA

Cadets from 422 (Corby) Squadron Royal Air Force Air Cadets recently assisted at a World War One Relatives’ Tea hosted by Corby Mayor, Councillor Anthony Dady.

On Saturday 15 November 2014, the Cadets were joined at St John’s Church in Corby Old Village by guests from the town and its surrounding areas. They took part in a small ceremony at the Cenotaph to remember those that were involved with and lost their lives in the Great War.  A reading from the Bible was given by Cadet Hannah Eden.

The Reverend Paul Frost from St John’s Church and 422 (Corby) Squadron Chaplain, said: “Many thanks for the help of 422 (Corby) Squadron on Saturday – they did a wonderful job as usual!”

The Cadets were very interested to learn about events that occurred in and around their town during the Great War.  Further details can be found on Corby Borough Council’s website at: http://www.corby.gov.uk/site-page/borough-stories-1914-1918.
