398 (Staines & Egham) Squadron:
Who are we?
398 Squadron, recognised by Wing HQ as the Best Squadron in the Wing, is based at Pond Road, Egham, Surrey TW20 8BG
Excelling in all areas of cadet life, 398 Squadrons boasts a fine tradition of high achieving marksmen. It currently holds the only two Cadet 50s in the Wing, multiple Cadet 100s, and most of the cadets, even the most junior, hold at least a Wing Marksman.
The squadron also provides great sporting talent, with 398 cadets and NCOs regularly competing for Region and Corps in Athletics, Rugby, Hockey and Netball.
A 398 cadet won the 2012 Corps aircraft recognition competition.
Though small in size, the squadron regularly out performs larger squadrons such as 1083 (Uxbridge) and 14F (Northolt), due to the concerted and organised effort which the cadet NCOs make to individually develop and encourage every individual.
Parade nights are Monday and Thursday, 1845hrs until 2145hrs.

The current OC is Flt Lt Derrick Budd (RAFVRT).
