Cadet Presentation:
29th July 2021

Stonehaven Golf Club

The Lord-Lieutenant Alastair C.S. Macphie was very pleased to join Flt Lt RAFAC George Stephen OC at the 1297 and 865 Squadron Award Ceremony at Stonehaven Golf Club. 1297 Squadron were on parade for the first time since lockdown began and I am reliable informed that was a total of 501 days!

Congratulations to the award recipients:

  • Acting Pilot Officer Ryan Watson – Lord Lieutenants Cadet 2020/2021 (865 Squadron). He is now joining the staff.
  • Cadet Flight Sergeant Coel Adams – Lord Lieutenants Cadet 2021/2022 (1297 Squadron)
  • Warrant Officer Colin Campbell – Lord Lieutenants Certificate of Meritorious Service (1297 Squadron). For his 18 years of voluntary service with the Cadets, instilling so many life skills and creating the environment for many lifetime friendships amongst Cadets.

The staff have done an excellent job keeping the Cadets connected and continuing their training throughout lockdown. There was a very noticeable relief to be all back together in person.
