Warwickshire & Birmingham wing annual camp
RAF Lossiemouth

From the 7-14 of July 27 cadets from Warwickshire and Birmingham wing attended an annual camp at RAF Lossiemouth. This camp consisted of many first timers to annual camp and was a brilliant example of what is to offer on such camps.

Being Scotland the weather was assumed to be poor, but Lossiemouth held out and the weather was beautiful, only having 1 down fall during a night exercise at the nearby RAF Kinloss. Also at Kinloss Cadets also had the opportunity to attempt their swimming proficiency's and watch Nimrod MR2's take off.

Back at Lossiemouth during the days cadets eyes were to the skies to watch formations of Tornado GR4's take off and land. Coupled with this the two Sea King Search And Rescue helicopters based at Lossie were always on call and could often be seen in the sky. RAF Lossiemouth is home to numerous Squadrons including the famous 617 Dambusters Squadron, which was a highlight for the week, all Cadets received a 617 squadron T-shirt.

Other visits included the RAF Police Dogs, 12 Squadron, SERE, Fire Section, range practice, gliding experience, Padre, leadership exercises with the ACLO staff and a night exercise with ration packs. The stations bowling alley was made available and Cadets had fun relaxing at the alley and at the quiz night. Another highlight of the camp was a Navigation Exercise near the beaches of Lossiemouth, the beauty of being in Scotland really showed through although so did the bugs. This camp had all the features of annual camp but with some unique Scottish highlights.

Many thanks to all the staff, RAF Personnel and Cadets who put the effort in to make the camp a memorable one.
