The Marham air cadet unit is closing, due to insufficient officers and instructors in the region, with the final parade night on November 14.

A spokesman for RAF Marham said: 'Air cadets at RAF Marham 864 (Marham) Detached Flight were advised on Monday by the Norfolk and Suffolk Wing Air Training Corps that they would be closing the Marham cadet unit.

'They advised the cadets and parents that they had insufficient officers and instructors in the Norfolk and Suffolk Wing and therefore needed the services of the two officers currently running the 864 (Marham) Detached Flight to assist in units elsewhere.

'The cadets that currently attend the 864 (Marham) Detached Flight have been advised that they can transfer to units at either Downham Market or Swaffham.'
