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.
This year’s cadets are:
Leading Cadet Crystal Walker – Camberley Sea Cadets – SCC
Leading Cadet Ashton Oakes – Staines and Egham Sea Cadets – SCC
ACF Cadet Sergeant Megan Ritchie – Farnham Detachment, Surrey (PWRR Bn) – ACF
ATC Cadet Warrant Officer Lucas Reeve – 1349 (Woking) Squadron, Surrey Wing – ATC
Explorer Scout – James Richardson
Cadet Sergeant – Lily Brown
