Duke of Edinburgh Expedition Success

Six Royal Air Force Air Cadets from 2328 (Bishop’s Cleeve) Squadron successfully completed their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Expedition in the Severn Valley.

Moving down the Gloucester to Sharpness Canal

Five other cadets from the Squadron as well as another from 186 (Newent) Squadron, completed their expedition training and will carry out their actual expedition later.

On the first day, the groups walked on level ground from Whitminster to Moreton Valance where they camped overnight. The next day they climbed the Cotswold escarpment before finishing at Edge.

Flight Lieutenant Richard Jennings, Officer Commanding 2328 Squadron, said, “The cadets did very well and should be proud of their success. I expect that they will achieve their Bronze Awards soon.”

The Royal Air Force Air Cadets is one of the leading National Operating Authorities for the Duke of Edinburgh Award and our cadets are fully motivated and supported in completing their awards.
