It is great sadness that we have lost another leader in the Air Cadet Community.
Maj (Ret) "Tommy" Thomas had a huge heart for Cadets and Staff, he was with the Air Cadet League for more than 30 years, most of those years, as the Squadron and Regional Director in our area.
He was very instrumental in organizing the Glider Interview process for the League in the Trenton area. He attended, for many years, all of the Summer Training graduations 2nd, 3rd and 6 week courses and of course the Glider Course, and presented many awards.
He will be missed at our 608 Annual Ceremonial Reviews, which he has attended for years.
