Cadet Sergeant Piper Noble, of Humberside and South Yorkshire Army Cadet Force has been awarded one of the highest honours any cadet can achieve – appointment as a Lord-Lieutenant Cadet for their county.

As well as this award three of our adult staff; Sergeant Major Instructor Ann Bowers,Staff Sergeant Instructor Rebecca Montgomery, and Sergeant Instructor Janine Clark were awarded Lord-Lieutenant's Awards.

They were among those honoured at a special ceremony at 212 (Yorkshire) Field Hospital’s base at Endcliffe Hall, Sheffield, which was hosted by the RFCA for Yorkshire and the Humber to enable the Lord-Lieutenant to recognise some of the county’s very best volunteers.

His Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of South Yorkshire, Professor Dame Hilary Chapman DBE RN, paid tribute to her new appointees who she personally selected in recognition of their exemplary contribution to their units and wider community.

The Lord-Lieutenant said: “It is a privilege to be able to pay tribute to some of South Yorkshire’s outstanding individuals who volunteer valuable time to serve their communities through their commitment to the cadet and reserve forces.

“It is particularly a pleasure to welcome my newly-appointed Lord-Lieutenant Cadets . They are remarkable young people and I am looking forward to getting to know them over the next year.

“I am also delighted to recognise the contribution made by the region’s cadet force adult volunteers. They deserve our deepest gratitude for the time they give to help young people gain access to the wide range of opportunities made possible by the cadet movement."
