Cadets of 215 paraded their standards in front of the Lord Lieutenant, High Sheriff and Lord Mayor at the
very first 'Cenotaph Parade' in Morriston Park, Swansea.

Sian James MP, Val Lloyd AM and Chief Superintendent Mark Mathias were also in attendance for this historical occasion where the Cadets were commended very highly for their professionalism and support for the Veteran Associations.

The Cadets of 215 now carry over thirteen standards for various associations - this must be a record !

Kathryn Jenkins is the face of the 'POPPY APPEAL'

215 Squadron is the drive behind the 'Poppy Appeal' in the City and County of Swansea providing Cadets and Staff for over twenty days at six different superstores.

Last year the Staff and Cadets helped the Swansea Branch collect over £47,000 ~ a record since the British Legion was formed in Swansea.

If any parents or relatives of Cadets want to help collect this year especially in the evenings from 17.00 until 21.00 hours - please contact the CO asap.



'The Wave'
Salutes the Cadets of 215 for their work for the 'Poppy Appeal'

Cdt Amy John (f) and Cadet Daniel Ray were given special 'Air Time' on 'The Wave' Radio Station as they committed over 10 hours to the 'Poppy Appeal' fundraising activities in ASDA for 2008. The Cadets were escorted by A/Sgt Carol John (f) throughout the day and the Cadets collected over £500.00.

The Cadets of 215 are the supreme supporters of the Royal British Legion 'Poppy Appeal' in Wales.

Cadets help RBL Swansea Branch Close Club & Office Premises 2008

Cadets helped Officers of the Swansea Branch move all their 'Poppy Appeal' equipment from the old Club Premises and RBL Office to a storage facility at the TA Center in Morfa. It is hoped that a new office will be found very shortly to provide for the Members and Welfare Cases throughout the City and County of Swansea.

215 Squadron Staff and Cadets are on their way to helping raise the highest collection for the 'Poppy Appeal' in the history of Swansea Branch and the Royal British Legion.

The estimated figure so far is well over £40,000, with at least £25,000 of this figure being raised by the Staff and Cadets throughout Swansea.

The final figures will be revealed soon but 215 has once more 'Set New Standards' within the Community and everyone involved can be immensely proud of their efforts.


Civilian Committee Member Motlib Latif and Abdul Latif sponsored ninety one Cadets with an indian buffet after the Cadets and Staff worked extremely hard over a four week period for the
Royal British Legion and the 'Poppy Appeal 2007'.
