Two identical twins from Horsham are hoping to pursue careers in the military.

Genna and Allie Rawlins, 17, who are both air cadets, are looking at getting scholarships for university funded by the RAF, with Genna hoping to get a navy scholarship into the Fleet Air Arm and go straight from university into the navy.

Allie, eldest twin by two minutes, explained: “Genna has always wanted to be a pilot and at first I wanted to be a pilot but I got more into science subjects so decided to go into dentistry and fly as a hobby instead so my aim is to get into the RAF as a dentist.”

They have also flown in the Virtual Flight Centre in Coolham and done paragliding at Devil’s Dyke in Brighton.
