All Cadets & Staff,
3WG Logistics Flight have recalled all heavyweight Service Dress Jumpers. These jumpers are no longer being produced by Defence and are needed by those Squadrons in very cold climates. Warmer Squadrons are now only permitted to wear lightweight SD jumpers.
Can I please ask that all cadets therefore bring their SD jumper along to parade this Thursday? (Regardless if it is heavyweight or lightweight).
Any cadet who has been issued a heavyweight jumper will return home empty handed (with a lightweight jumper ordered for issue in February), while those who have a lightweight jumper will be able to take their jumper back home.
If you have any questions regarding this request, contact the Squadron Supply Officer, LAC(AAFC) Griffiths.
On behalf of the Commanding Officer 305SQN AAFC.
