We offer our sincere thanks to 1145 Air Cadet Squadron, whose Burn Supper Ceilidh event, which was held at the Garvock House Hotel, Dunfermline, has raised over £1100 in support of The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund.
Captain David Seath served as a Cadet at 1145 Squadron during the early 2000’s, and it was the breadth of experiences gained as a cadet which developed his leadership skills, prior to studying at Aberdeen University and enrolling at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.
David later served his country with distinction in Afghanistan with 19th Regiment Royal Artillery (The Scottish Gunners), who operated in the Nahri Saraj district of Helmand Province in 2012 as part of Herrick 16. Captain Seath operated from Main Operation Base (MOB) Price and commanded artillery fire in support ground operations, led numerous combat patrols and delivered training support to Afghanistan Defence Forces.
Upon his return from Afghanistan, David successfully completed the All Arms Commando Course to earn the coveted Green Beret. He served in 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery as a Fire Team Support Commander. He would later embark on a tour of the Middle East where he oversaw the training of Kurdish special forces.
The funds will be used to support personnel and veterans, living with physical and psychological trauma through Help for Heroes. Since it was established, the Captain David Seath Memorial Fund has raised over £290,000 and supported over 250 beneficiaries rebuild their lives.
