AFTER another year of success 455 (Morecambe and Heysham) Squadron received the honour of being awarded the best squadron in Cumbria and North Lancashire Wing for 2010.

This was last awarded to the squadron in 1975.

Cadets and staff of 455 Squadron now prepare for inspection by the Regional Commandant, as this title has earned the squadron the nomination for the prestigious Lees Trophy.

The Lees Trophy is awarded on an annual basis to the best squadron in the Air Training Corps.

The corps comprises of approximately 41,000 cadets attending 969 squadrons.

Every year, each of the 36 wings in the corps nominates a single squadron to compete for the trophy.
