George’s medal

Joseph Bulmer

CADET George Jones of 20 (Bideford) Squadron, Air Training Corps, has gained

a double award for his rugby playing talents.

He was selected to represent Devon and Somerset Wing in the Inter-Wing Rugby Championship held at RAF Lyneham in Wiltshire.

George was earlier this year selected for the Under-16s Junior Championship. Then the call-up to represent the Wing in the Senior Championships followed shortly after his 16th birthday.

George, who lives in Torrington, is hoping to be selected at the Regional Championship being held later this month at RAF Cosford and to go on to represent the Air Training Corps when they take on the Army Cadets, the Sea Cadets and the Combined Cadet Force.
