New recruits have been welcomed into the Air Training Corps family at 1094 Ely Squadron. 

24 out of 28 junior cadets of Tutor Flight were enrolled after completing phase one of their basic training. 

The cadets were registered by the Squadron padre, Reverend Alan Jesson with Ely Squadron’s commanding officer flight lieutenant, J Donoghue RAFAC and Mr David Martin, the chair of the Ely branch of the Royal British Legion. 

A spokesperson for Ely Squadron said: “We plan to enrol the remaining four new recruits this week as they were absent due to school commitments.” 

“We have over 30 other potential recruits on our waiting list ready to join.

"The only thing stopping the Squadron expanding further are the Covid-19 restrictions on indoor social distancing.
