Gallery: Apache helicopter drops in on Holbrook pupils

HOLBROOK: The iconic Apache and Lynx helicopters visited the Royal Hospital School for a Combined Cadet Force (CCF) Army ceremony.

The ceremony involved the formal acceptance of the support of 4 Regiment Army Air Corps as the Royal Hospital School’s newly affiliated regiment.

A formal parade was followed by a presentation of berets to the students and a welcome address by the UK Attack Helicopter Force Commander, Colonel Neale Moss OBE.

Children from Holbrook Primary School were also involved in the event, with years three and four watching the parade.

Lieutenant Colonel Marc Godfrey, Contingent Commander at RHS, said: “The CCF aims to enhance qualities of responsibility, self-reliance, endurance and perseverance. It also offers the opportunity to develop leadership skills to all our pupils.”
