DISS Air Cadets undertook a 24-hour drill marathon at the weekend and raised a staggering �1,142.

The marathon, which began at 7.30pm on Friday, was completed by Cadets and staff and was the first time the Squadron has organised such an event.

During their 'down-time' the Cadets took the opportunity to smarten up their uniforms, shaping berets, bullying toecaps and improving on their mum's ironing.

Pilot Officer Emma Dixon, who helped the Cadets organise the event, said: "To raise �1,142 is incredible. The Cadets worked really hard and their drill improved so much. Even after 23 hours they still put in 100pc effort.

"We invited parents along for the final half an hour and the Cadets put on great drill display."
