lord lieutenant cadet badge


When I was told that I would be one of the ‘Lord Lieutenant Cadets of Suffolk’ I was amazed. I did not expect it considering how many people I know that are really good cadets. This position is a first on the Squadron and I am so proud of for being able to achieve it.

The position of ‘Lord Lieutenant Cadet’ I didn’t believe it, as it’s not something every cadet hears about! This year I am a cadet to Lord Tollemache who is the Lord of Suffolk. I unfortunately missed the presentation of the award as I was on The Ascension Island trip with cadets, but the Lord Tollemache very kindly invited my parents and nyself to his home at Helmingham Hall for my own presentation. The Lord Lieutenant Cadets of Suffolk have been asked to attend the Suffolk Show on Thursday 29th May to meet and greet a Royal visitor who turns out to Prince Harry. I will be with two other cadets, one each from Army Cadets and Sea Cadets, which will be good to make friends as we don’t often interact with the other cadet forces. This will be a great experience in itself being Lord Lieutenant Cadet, but also meeting Royalty is almost a once in a life time experience.
