Cadets and staff from 272 (Wisbech) Squadron Air Cadets took part in the annual Remembrance Parade held in Wisbech town centre on Sunday.

The combined Corps of Drums led the parade for the second year in a row. The cadet units marched to Wisbech Market Place under the command of Sergeant Andy Huggins (ATC) where the rest of the parade joined them.

The combined band led veterans, representatives from RAF Marham and other uniformed organisations. The parade made its way to the memorial for a short service and where the two minute silence was observed. The wreaths were laid with Cadet John Goude (16) given honour of laying the ATC one. The banner bearer for the Air Cadets this year was Cadet Warrant Officer Oli Grocott, aged 18.

Leaving the memorial the parade marched to St Peter’s Church for the service of Remembrance before marching back to the Market Place for the Wisbech Mayor’s inspection and dismissal.

The final act of the day was the Cadet Services of Wisbech marching proudly back to their Sandyland Headquarters.

“It was a fantastic parade and I was really honoured to have been chosen to lay the wreath on behalf of the squadron,” said Cadet John Goude.
