Lord-Lieutenant Cadet Ceremony Shropshire

Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadet Ceremony

Last Year, due to Covid 19 the Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadet Ceremony was held virtually.  Thankfully with life returning to some sort of normality the Lord Lieutenant for Shropshire, Mrs Anna Turner was delighted to be able to present the cadets with their badges personally at a ceremony held at Shrewsbury Castle on 1st July.

For the Cadet Forces across Shropshire, one of the highlights of the year is the appointment of the Lord-Lieutenant Cadet, one of the most prestigious appointments a cadet can be honoured with in recognition of their outstanding service and commitment. The Lord-Lieutenant Cadet is seen as an aide and a representative of the cadet forces across the region when a member of the Royal family visits Shropshire. A representative is chosen from the Sea Cadets, the Army Cadet Force, the Air Training Corps and the Combined Cadet Force and they will accompany the Lord-Lieutenant on civic and military visits. This years cadets are :

Cadet Sgt Joel Kelly ACF
