1359 Officers and cadets on parade at the Beeston war memorial.

A crisp autumn morning saw 1359 squadron cadets remembering the fallen from all wars around the globe.

A huge gathering of the public also paid tribute to those that have been injured and those that cannot come home.

A little about who we are and what we do.
