Air cadet Bradley Setchell was welcomed as RAF Wittering’s new Station Commander’s Cadet in a special ceremony.

Cadet Warrant Officer, Bradley Setchell from 1181 Squadron ATC in Leicestershire, was pre-selected back in 2013 from a long list of candidates in cadet squadrons across Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and the South and the East Midlands. During the next 12 months Bradley will be given a unique insight into the Royal Air Force and life at RAF Wittering, accompanying the Station Commander on a series of official engagements.

Cadet Warrant Officer Setchell is determined to fulfil the role to the best of his ability and said: “I’m excited to be offered this opportunity to be able to witness a side of the RAF that cadets do not normally see.”

Symbolically marking the end of her year as the first RAF Wittering Station Commander’s Cadet, Cadet Flight Sergeant Jess Danells placed the official RAF Wittering brassard on her successor’s shoulder at the ceremony held on Thursday last week. Jess was also presented with a framed brassard as a memento.

RAF Wittering Station Commander, Group Captain Damian Alexander said: “Station Commander’s Cadets must earn their appointment and be of the highest calibre. The minimum standards are exceptional cadetship and academic conscientiousness.

“Bradley embodies both these qualities; I’m certain the next twelve months will benefit him, the station, his squadron and the cadets.”
