TWO LOCAL air cadets were awarded for their hard work at the training centre they’ve been at for the summer.

Cadet Mitchell Hess and Cadet Michael Brown, both from the 747 Terrace Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron, completed the three-week Basic Drill Ceremonial Course at Albert Head Air Cadet Summer Training Centre near Victoria, B.C.

At the final graduation parade, Hess received a plaque for Top Cadet and Brown won his for Most Improved.

They were nominated out of 35 cadets in their flight.

The mission of the Basic Drill and Ceremonial Course is to supplement the training conducted at the cadet’s local squadron and to achieve the Basic Leadership qualification and be able to further develop leadership, drill and ceremonial knowledge, and skills.
