A trio of high-flying Castleford air cadets have gained their bronze Duke of Edinburgh’s award.

Cadet Corporal Robert Lloyd, Cadet Lewis Filtness and Cadet Oliver Charlesworth from 2388 (Castleford) Squadron took six months to compete the award which consists of voluntary service, skill, physical and expeditions.

The group walked 25 kilometres over each expedition weekend. Flt Lt Vicky Williamson, commanding officer, said: “I am very proud of each of the cadets as I know they have put in a lot of hard work, time and effort into gaining the award.”
