A COAT of arms is being presented to an air cadet squadron in Nailsea to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

The 2467 (Nailsea) Air Cadet Squadron has been granted a coat of arms by the Royal College of Arms in London.

The crest is designed to demonstrate the squadron’s links with Nailsea and features a pick-axe, to represent mining, and two glass blowers lamps with Nailsea green glass being blown.

The crest will be formally presented to the air cadet squadron later this year.

Flt Lt John Radford, officer commanding 2467 (Nailsea) squadron, said: “This is yet another exciting honour for the squadron that continues to build stronger links with the community in which it serves.”
