Saturday 17th December 2022 saw Sword Company's first CSM Award and Mess Dinner.
The CSM Awards were brought about when CSMI J Hearn became CSM for A Coy. She wanted to celebrate and reward the cadets, based on our Core Values and Standards.
The newly formed Sword Company has carried on this event, only bigger and better with the addition of 3 more detachments.
Each detachment within Sword Coy nominates a cadet, that they feel goes above and beyond based on the Core Values and Standards.
7 cadets were nominated within the company. The cadets and their parents/guardians/carers were invited to attend. The nominees were
1 Cdt Sgt Drake, Abbey Park Detachment
2 Cdt L/Cpl Smith, Marlborough Detachment
3 Cdt Baker, Swindon Academy Detachment
4 Cdt L/Cpl Heath, Abbeyfield Detachment
5 Cdt Robson, Church Place Detachment
6 Cdt Hendricks, Royal Wootton Bassett Detachment
7 Cdt L/Cpl Coshall, Dorcan Detachment
The standards were very high and the decision was difficult for the Company OC, 2I/C, and CSM. Sadly one cadet only could win the award.
After some serious discussions, The CSMs Award goes to Cdt Robson from Church Place Detachment. A massive congratulations to you and to all the nominees.
