Congratulations to 18-year-old Cadet Warrant Officers Kian Williams and Nia Phillips who have been appointed as No 1 Welsh Wing’s new Wing Cadet Warrant Officers.

It is the first time in its history that No 1 Welsh Wing has appointed two Cadet Warrant Officers to the role of Wing Cadet Warrant Officer.

Cadet Warrant Officer Kian Williams of 1004 (Pontypridd) Squadron, and, Cadet Warrant Officer Nia Phillips of 2077 (Pontyclun) Squadron, were chosen out of a field of 700 for their post.

Kain, who is studying computer science at Coleg y Cymoedd, said, “After six years of being a cadet, I am now coming towards the end of my cadet career. I am really thankful that I have been given the opportunity to fulfil this role and I look forward to doing my part for the Wing during my tenure”

Nia, who has been an air cadet for four years, said, “I am really proud to have been appointed to the role of Wing CWO. To be able to represent our Wing, when the time for ceremonial duties returns, is a great privilege. I am looking forward to working alongside CWO Williams to keep shining a positive light on the RAFAC and encourage the young people in No 1 Welsh Wing to do the same.”

Wing Commander Robert Timothy said, “For the first time in its history No 1 Welsh Wing has appointed two Cadet Warrant Officers to the role of Wing Cadet Warrant Officer for 2020/21. The post of Wg CWO is the pinnacle of cadet achievement and following a rigorous selection procedure, the selection panel recommended that both Kian Williams and Nia Phillips both be appointed. These two young people are going places and out of 700 cadets, they are the creme de le creme”.
