Army cadets get highest accolade

Army cadets get highest accolade

THE Henley Army Cadet Force received the top grade of above standard following its annual inspection last month.

The cadets were visited by the Light Aid Detachment Royal Electrical Mechanical Engineers, based at Dalton Barracks in Abingdon.

Captain “Moz” Watson, the commanding officer, commended the cadets on their outstanding turnout and bearing and said he had enjoyed watching them all during the evening’s activities. L Corp James Rechner, a pupil at Gillotts School, received his silver Duke of Edinburgh’s award, and Corp Emma Dodd received her bronze award.

The Army Cadet Force is a national 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 cadets parade at the Drill Hall in Friday Street every Wednesday from 7pm to 9.30pm and are currently looking for new cadets and adult volunteers.

Feel free to come along and experience something new. For more information, please email detachment commander 2nd Lt Thomas Fearn at 3875 fear@army
