North Wales reserves and cadets have been rewarded for their incredible contributions to their communities by Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Clwyd.
HM Lord-Lieutenant of Clwyd, Henry Fetherstonhaugh Esq. OBE FRAgS, held his annual awards ceremony on 21 March in his role as the Queen’s representative for the area.
The event at Harry Weale Hall Army Reserves Centre, in Queensferry, celebrated the high achievers from the reserve and cadet communities at the event.
Reserves from all services are vital and valued members of the UK’s Defence family. They enhance their everyday civilian lives through exciting adventurous training opportunities, also gaining transferable skills to boost their civilian careers.
The Lord-Lieutenant Cadets for 2019 were appointed to their new role and they received a distinctive badge to mark the occasion. The role includes accompanying the Lord-Lieutenant at official engagements, such as Royal visits and Remembrance services, and representing Cadets throughout the county.
There are over 4,400 active Cadets at 210 locations across Wales. They are helped by more than 1,200 volunteers, who provide opportunities and inspiration for future generations to gain life changing experiences, skills and qualifications.
