CO’s Message

Congratulations to all of the cadets who received the uniform updates for their promotions last week. If you weren’t in attendance, don’t worry. We’ve got your slip-ons, rank badges, and level badges waiting for you and will issue them as soon as we see you. When everyone has them and we have a complete set of pictures, Sgts Couroux and Abt will be working on a collage so that everyone who couldn’t be there can share in our cadets’ accomplishments.

Once again, there will be a virtual meeting on Google Meet for parents/guardians of existing and new cadets where we will outline how 809 Newark Squadron will be delivering the air cadet program this year. For new cadets and their parents/guardians, this will be a summary of the cadet program, our objectives for the training year, and a comparison of how we will be operating versus how we operate normally. For parents and guardians of existing cadets, this will be an overview of changes that have become necessary in the face of COVID-19. A Q&A session will follow the presentation. If you know of any potential new cadets who might be interested in joining us, please direct them to one of these sessions. If further dates need to be scheduled, those can be done as required.

As of Friday, 30 Oct, the Legion Poppy Campaign has begun. Until the end of Remembrance Day itself, the Poppy is a mandatory component of the air cadet uniform. When wearing tunics or shirts with pockets, the Poppy is worn centred on the flap of the left breast pocket. When wearing sweaters or t-shirts, the Poppy is worn approximately over the heart. We won’t be participating in the Poppy Campaign directly this year due to COVID-19 restrictions, but we will still be observing the season in our own fashion. If you do not already have a Poppy for your uniform, we will have them at HQ when you arrive for training.

See you on Wednesday!
