Royal Air Force Air Cadets Event

Air Cadets 2

On Friday 5th April, we arrived at the 1903 Penge squadron HQ in our uniform looking incredibly smart with shoes like mirrors and travelled to Twickenham to attend the rugby event at ‘The Stoop’, home to the Harlequins.  We were given buckets to collect money for the RAF Benevolent fund, which supports retired Veterans and their families.  Finding our seats, we started to walk around the stadium in search of supporters with loose change to fill up our empty buckets.  Prior to the first match of the day, which was the ladies RAF vs Navy game, we saw an RAF band march out onto the pitch playing bagpipes, dressed in their special uniforms. 

It was a very intense game for both sides with the final score of 67-3 to the RAF.   The excitement of the game was electrifying.  After the first match we collected donations again offering out our buckets in search of supporters willing to donate!

We returned to our seats again for the men’s game.  Both sides played hard and fast with many high kicks which the players had to chase at great speed.  The final score was 25-10 to the Royal Navy.  It was a great privilege to watch the RAF and Royal Navy teams play to such a high standard.

We learnt that the RAF and Royal Navy teams play their sports with great athleticism and sportsmanship, even when competing against each other, however when they fight for their country they join together as formidable force proving that team work in both sports and the Forces is very important.
