Monday night saw a fantastic awards ceremony at 106 RMP Sidcup Detachment with cadets being honoured for their achievements over the last year. In attendance to present the awards were: David Easton JP DL, Deputy Lord Lieutenant for Bexley, Cllr James Hunt, Mayor of Bexley, Colonel Clinton Riley, Colonel Cadets ACF and Major Dieter Aretz, Officer Commanding 10 Company.

Amongst the award winners were Cdt Staff Sergeant Louis Clark receiving the Deputy Lord Lieutenant's Award; Cdt Cpl Louis Paul-Wakes receiving RMP Cadet of the Year 2020 and Sergeant Jordan Farrelly who received his Duke of Edinburgh Award Gold Pin which he completed in 2019!

Assiduous readers will note an earlier news item where 5 cadets from 106 Detachment helped a casualty on their Duke of Edinburgh expedition, they were honoured with certificates as well. Congratulations to Cdt Cpl Dan Cripps, Cdt Cpl, Louis Paul-Wakes and Cadets Fresneda, Zylfo and Whitwell.

Sergeant-Major Debbie Goodall, Detachment Commander welcomed the guests and showed them around the detachments where they were able to see lessons in progress and were able to meet with the cadets.

A fantastic achievement by an amazing group of young people who have flourished as members of the Army Cadet Force over the last year and are looking forward to Annual Camp in August and continuing with their successful cadet careers!
