Airborne Fundraiser 2016

Tonight the 148 (Barnsley) Squadron band along with some banner bearers were invited attended a fundraiser by The Airborne Comrades Association of Barnsley.

The night began with the band playing a selection of memorable pieces including great little army, wish me luck and Tipperary under the direction if our Bandmaster CI Graham Ackrill. This was met by a substantial amount of applause and some audience sing-a-long. Our lead woodwind player had a solo piece of moonlight serenade, to which the bandmaster said was ‘beautiful’.

During the evening the Squadron standards were paraded and a small remembrance service was held. The cadets and staff stood in reflection and looked smart and performed their actions during the event very well.

All together it was a memorable occasion and something that 148 (Barnsley) Squadron Cadets should be proud to participate in each year.
