Battle of Britain Parade :: Air Cadets

Adrienne's first parade as a brand new Air Cadet was today, for the Battle of Britain 70th Anniversary Parade. She just started last Monday. We all learned a bit more about this World War II battle as part of the homework she had to do.
"The Battle of Britain was the first major campaign to be fought entirely by air forces, and was also the largest and most sustained aerial bombing campaign to that date." (wikipedia)
You can read a lot more about it here.
I think we will be learning more about the Canadian Forces this year!

Adrienne marched along with her squadron:

We couldn't hear much of the speeches, their microphone wasn't very loud, but we sure heard the gun fires, they fired three times:

There was a flypast as well:

I thought this was too cute to not take a photo...

The ceremony is done at that point,
 the Cadets were receiving their orders to start marching back:
