A piece of local history was made as Air Cadets from 1406 (Spalding) Squadron fired their first ever rounds in the National Cadet Indoor Air Rifle Competition.

Spalding Squadron does not have its own range, so cadets and staff travelled to Orton to use the indoor air rifle range that Squadron and Wing Warrant Officer Chris Bone helped to install.

This is the first year the squadron has competed in the event.

WO Bone said: “The squadron is now eager to install its own indoor air rifle range, and with help and advice from headquarters Air Cadets, we will hopefully see progress being made in the New Year.”

Squadron 2 IC Flying Officer Angela Bone said, “We knew this would prove be popular, and competition among them has almost reached fever pitch, to be the first to gain the many marksmanship awards available.”
