GENEROUS councillor Peter Geary lent a helping hand, and tractor, to help move an unusual object for the Air Cadets.

Cadets saw 2366 Squadron’s gate mascot Harrier GR3 jump jet XV752 moving to its new permanent home – a purpose built pad outside the squadron’s Bletchley Park HQ, just in time to be in place for Her Majesty’s recent visit to Milton Keynes.

Councillor Geary used his giant tractor to move the world famous aircraft, which attracted many intrigued onlookers.

The 2366 cadets are looking forward to the squadron’s 50th anniversary celebrations, now barely eight weeks away, when a new standard will be presented.

Squadron Chaplain Chris Hicken is appealing to past cadets who wish to share the celebrations. If you were a Bletchley Air Cadet in the early years following September 1961 email Chris at sqn50atc@btinternet.com or visit www.2366atc.co.uk
