Air cadets on the move on the sea after 75 years
PUBLISHED: 06:00 17 September 2016
This year sees the Air Training Corps celebrate 75 years and the Norfolk and Suffolk Wing have created a time capsule which was to travel between all of the units in the Wing and each unit place something in the capsule. They also had to devise a novel way to transport the capsule from one Squadron to another.
On Sunday, 2356 (Caister) Squadron was to get the capsule to 1132 (Stalham) Squadron so they enlisted the help of Caister Lifeboat to travel up to Sea Palling where they were transferred onto the inshore lifeboat to get back on dry land. They travelled on to Stalham where they handed it over to CI Terry Owens.
