Change to Promotions and Exams

As in 2020 the Covid-19 virus is affecting every Group to different degrees, and this is also affecting how NCO promotions are being carried out during this time.

With this being the case, a temporary postponement of the practical component of NCO and Flag Party exams is now being put into place. This is for Squadrons who have not been able to return to face-to-face parades.
