Remembrance Day 2017
On the weekend of 11th November 2017, 740 (Whitby) squadron showed their respects at Remembrance Day. The squadron presented themselves to to public with impressive number of 26 cadets and 7 adults.
At 11:00 pm, the cadets and adults assembled at Whitby’s War Memorial for a short service, at 12:00 pm, as the church bells rang, the squadron and members of public had a moment of silence.
At 2:00 pm, the squadron took part in a Service of Remembrance by sending the poppy anchor to sea. The squadron was able to take part in this service with the help of the local Whitby RNLI. Two cadets (Humphreys and Brighton) were chosen to accompany the poppy anchor to sea, where the RNLI would lay the anchor to rest.
Thank you to all cadets and staff who volunteered their time over the weekend.
