SAM 1356 120603 Spitfire March  SAM 1355 120603 Spitfire March

Departure was at 05:00hrs on Sunday 3rd June 2012. Four cadets Cadet Corporal Luke Hammond, Cdt Ben Arnold, Cdt Harry Jackson and Cdt Louise Camplin along with four staff joined 188 (Ipswich) Squadron for the journey to Dibgate Army Camp near Folkestone.

The reason for the trip was the continued walking training and participation in the Spitfire March near Folkestone. Most took part in the 40k march with two taking part in the 27k march. The march was through the undulating countryside around the Folkestone area. Suffolk being mainly flat the march did make all of us dig a little deeper, as the hills were something to behold! The day was cool with low cloud on the hill tops, great for us on the march but not good for the views. Everyone completed their distances in good spirits even though legs and feet were feeling the effort that was put in.
