Birmingham Military Tattoo29th November 2015
A trip to the Birmingham Military Tattoo where 9000 visitors enjoyed spectacular performances from superb national and international bands and displays teams.  The atmosphere was breathtaking, the pyrotechnics and choreography was exceptional, with a true bond between military personnel from across the globe.  Spitfires, field gun teams, dog races, hugely talented bands from various international military teams including Air Forces, Army, Navy and even the Swedish Fire Brigade,  plus an outstanding performance from an 80 strong Bagpipes band - this was a truly excellent day out for staff and cadets.

The rain held off for an extremely well attended Remembrance Sunday parade and church services. 230 Squadron ATC joined the people of Congleton and representatives of many other organisations in a poignant and respectful tribute to the men and women who gave their lives in service to our country. Cpl Cooper made a moving recital of 'In Flanders' Fields' from the cenotaph and the Cpl Lea laid a wreath on behalf of the ATC.               (More photos in gallery)
