CELEBRATIONS were held to mark the 70th anniversary of the Air Training Corps in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

As part of the celebrations, 200 young people with their staff came together at Southwick Park, near Portsmouth, and marched through the park.

Squadron Leader Brian Swan said ‘It was an excellent opportunity to bring so many cadets together at such an historic location.’
