Each year in October, a number of young people are appointed to serve as Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadets.
They are drawn from the Sea Cadets, Army Cadets, the Air Training Corps, the Combined Cadet Force and from the civil uniformed youth organisations – Scouts, Girl Guiding and the St John Ambulance – across Surrey.
When on duty, Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadets wear a distinctive sash with the badge of their appointment, to denote their role. They assist the Lord-Lieutenant as required – often on parade for Royal visits – and act as ambassadors for their organisations and the young people of Surrey.
The five Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadets for 2019-20 are representatives from (left to right):
Girlguiding Surrey West – Christina (Nina) Savedra
St John Ambulance (Guildford) – Nia Geraint
The Surrey ACF (Dorking) – Cadet Sergeant Arthur O’Hanlon
Surrey Air Cadets (323 Epsom and Ewell) – Cadet Warrant Officer Jess Denington
St John’s School CCF – Cadet Warrant Officer James Perkins
