We are thrilled to formally announce the promotion and appointment of Lieutenant Colonel Anderson to Colonel and Cadet Commandant of 2nd (NI) Bn Army Cadet Force.

Col Anderson who is the epitome of an Army Cadet Force Adult Volunteer joined 2nd (NI) Bn ACF almost 45 years ago as an Army Cadet within Banbridge Detachment. Later enlisting as a CFAV 39 years ago, Col Anderson has served the Battalion faithfully within many roles including Detachment Commander, Company and Regimental Sergeant Major, Battalion Training Major and Company Commander of all four companies within the Battalion, something of which is an achievement in itself.

Col Anderson says “I am am honoured to have been selected as the new Cadet Commandant, and I look forward to helping the battalion move forward over the next three years’.

This is a richly deserved appointment Col Anderson and on behalf of all Army Cadets and CFAV’s within the battalion, we wish you every success.
