Highest accolade for Henley Company Sergeant

Highest accolade for Henley Company Sergeant

FORMER Henley detachment commander Company Sergeant Major Mike Quigley has received Oxfordshire’s top award for voluntary service.

He was presented with the Lord Lieutenant’s Award for “meritorious volunteer service” for his 16 years in the Army Cadet Force.

The presentation was made by Oxfordshire Lord Lieutenant Tim Stevenson at a ceremony at Pembroke College, Oxford, on Tuesday last week.

CSM Quigley was commended for his “can-do” attitude and active learning styles that have kept cadets engaged for the best part of two decades.

Henley detachment commander 2nd Lt Thomas Fearn said: “It was a huge honour to accompany CSM Quigley to the ceremony.

“Mike is a real role model for our volunteers and cadets alike and truly embodies our motto, ‘To inspire to achieve’.”

The Army Cadet Force is a national youth organisation for 12- to 18-year-olds sponsored and supported by the Ministry of Defence.

It provides a challenging and varied syllabus based on military themes.

The Henley Army Cadet Force parades at the Drill Hall in Friday Street, Henley, every Wednesday from 7pm to 9.30pm. We are currently looking for new cadets and adult volunteers, so feel free to come along and experience something new.
