WHAT WE DO
DRILL & PARADES
Turning on the spot, walking up and down flailing your arms might sound trivial… but its an art… trust me!
Drill is a vital part of being in the military and as a Cadet you will do it every time you visit us. It will become second nature and you’ll soon be perfecting it.
Marching past the Cenotaph, saluting the reviewing officer, military band playing, could you be any prouder? Local and national parades such as Remembrance Sunday and the Battle of Britain see our cadets take to the streets and turn them blue, in the act of remembrance.
Our Squadron possess its own military marching band. Our band is often tasked with leading parades, blasting regimental music through the streets.
Marching, or its official title of drill, is the backbone of any military unit. Instilling discipline, pride and the ability to act on a single word of command. As a Cadet you will be taught by our highly trained instructors, perfecting your drill to an art.
As well as basic foot drill, the RAFAC also teaches both banner and arms drill. Banner drill is associated with carrying the Squadrons standard (flag) on parades. Arms drill includes parading whilst shouldering a rifle, the true pinnacle of drill!
