The parade, which included over 300 cadets and staff from around the Wing, started at Humberstone Gate and worked its way around to Leicester Cathedral with 5F (Northampton) Squadron band leading the parade.

CWO Joseph Samuels-Hammond was lucky enough to be a part of the drum laying ceremony inside the church, which looked very smart alongside the Wing Banner.

Sergeant Hannah Eden said: “The parade was very successful. It was great being able to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the ATC, and I’m very proud to have been a part of it.”
