On Sunday, November 4, the Moorebank Squadron youth group of the AustralianAirLeague supported the Royal Australian Engineers Corps at their Freedom of Entry ceremony at Bigge Park. at Liverpool.

At the request of LiverpoolCouncil, Air League cadets performed a guard of honour around the wreaths and laid a wreath of their own at the memorial to pay their respects.

Commanding Officer Mr Bell said on the day: “It was great seeing our cadets today – the next generation supporting the Holsworthy School of Military Engineers. It’s also a testament to the hard work all the cadets put in, taking time out of their weekend to support the community.”

This Sunday, November 11, on the centenary of Armistice, Moorebank Squadron is back at Bigge Park to play an even larger role in the community ceremony.

The squadron will hold a recruitment stall afterwards, at the Armistice family picnic (11.30am to 5pm). The public can speak with officers and cadets about the Air League and ask any questions.

Boys aged 8 and over are invited to come along and see squadron activities and consider joining. Air League officers all have Working with Children checks.

The Air League is a voluntary youth organisation formed in 1934 to foster a spirit of aviation in the youth and to promote good citizenship.

Activities include aviation theory, flying, ceremonial drill, physical activities, modelling and camping. Members 14 and over have an opportunity to learn to fly at the Air League’s Camden Air Activities Centre with qualified volunteer instructors.

Moorebank Squadron meets on Fridays during school terms, 7pm to 9pm, at Nuwarra Public School, McKay Avenue, Moorebank.
