Olympic Torch

On Sunday 24th June 2012, the Squadrons band turned out to play as the Olympic Torch was carried through Ilkley.

The band played a number of their routine songs to the crowd as they waited for the torch to arrive before playing the traditional anthem 'On Ilkla Moor Baht 'at' as the torch was carried past.

The crowd very much enjoyed the performance and the band even got a mention on the BBC 2012 Olympics website.

Wing Training Day

On Sunday 13th May 2012 a team of cadets from 1224 (Wharfedale) Squadron travelled to RAF Linton-on-Ouse to take part in the Central & East Yorkshire Wing Training Day.

During the day cadets took part in a number of competitions and events including drill, 5-a-side football, aero modelling, first aid, aircraft recognition and media.

Although we didn't win any of the events we placed second in the 5-a-side football, third in the drill compeition (an improvement from previous years), third in aircraft recognition (by two points!), third in First Aid and fourth in the media competition.

Let's hope next year will bring even better results!
