Haworth natives Private Hutchinson and Air Mechanic Walmsley both served in the First World War and died in 1918, at the tragically young ages of 23 and 21 respectively.

Keighley Detachment's 2Lt Michelle Young and SI Neil Garside said they were very proud of the cadets who took part in the moving ceremony.

SI Garside said of Keighley's cadets, "They always go above and beyond. Your parents should be proud of each and every one of you, just as I am."

Detachment Commander, 2Lt Young added,"They have done our Company and County proud today!"

They certainly have!
