A CADET from a Romsey Squadron has been awarded the blue pre-Duke of Edinburgh Award badge.

Cadet Daniel Hodge, from Romsey Air Cadets, was awarded his blue badge by Flying Officer Dave Palk after completing a number of components that show that he has a good understanding of what will be required to go through the D of E.

The final section completed was the physical element that included shuttle runs, press ups, skipping and a ball bounce challenge.

Previously he had worked in the community for the cadets supporting the Squadron’s efforts at The Romsey Show.

The Air Cadets are one of the largest providers of the D of E scheme in the UK and cadets on Romsey Squadron are active members of the scheme.
