TWO Air Cadets have waved goodbye to their colleagues.
Dave Lawford (right) and Will Noble, both 20, have reached the age where they must leave cadet service with Huddersfield-based 59th Squadron.
Dave, from Meltham, reached the rank of Cadet Flight Sergeant.
He was the youngest qualified weapons instructor in the squadron, passing the course when he was 18.
He has move to the Holmfirth- based 1466 Squadron, where he will be a civilian instructor.
Will, from Barnsley, has been accepted into the RAF and is hoping to pursue a career in logistics.
He said: "This was one of the reasons I joined 59 Squadron.
"Experience as a cadet will certainly help me in the RAF, as I've a better idea of what to expect and what's expected of me."
Squadron commander Flight Lt Emma Leech said: "They are going to bigger and better things, while setting the bar high for the next batch of cadets coming through."
The squadron meets every Monday and Friday evening at St Paul's Street Drill Hall, between 7pm and 9pm. Anyone between 13 and 16 can join.
