Summary: Description of what a Wingthird is and does along with responsibilities of the role. For a complete picture of the Wing see the articles on Wingriders, Wingleaders, Wingseconds and Searchriders.
The Wingthird is the lowest position in the Wing leadership. The role could be related to that of a senior position in a craft; the position before real promotion happens. Some might call the role an over enthusiastic dogs body, but the Wingthird does have some duties and responsibilities that are part of their job. Their role is primarily active, however, working with other members of the wing and only the occasional written or verbal report. Because of this they do not have an office of their own, but could borrow a desk in the Wingsecond’s office if required.
These are things that the writer has the authority to run without checking with the BoD.
