Description:The aim of the Air Training Corps was to prepare cadets for service in the Royal Airforce or the Fleet Air Arm of the Royal Navy.

The Stone Air Defence Cadet Corps (later the A.T.C.) was founded in May 1941, with the help of Squadron-Leader H.C. Cooksey. The Senior School building was used as a centre, but in 1966 the A.T.C. moved to Walton Community Centre in Whitemill Lane.

The parade is seen here on Lichfield Street. Third from the right is Commanding Officer John Boult.

Person in centre of frame is Sean Dixon who continued on to fully fledged career within the R.A.F. He became Electronics and Air RADAR Technician working mainly on Panavia Tornado's and progressed up to the rank of Sergeant. At the time of the photograph he was 17 years of age.
