Remembrance Day is the most important day in the year for the Army Cadet Force, and our cadets and adults work hard to prepare for it. This preparation includes ensuring a very high standard of drill and turnout, and making sure our cadets represent the cadet force in the best possible way.
In the weeks before Remembrance Day, hundreds of our cadets took part in collecting for the Poppy Appeal at different locations accross the County, raising thousands of pounds for this incredibly important cause and also continuing to raise our profile in local communities.
On Remembrance Sunday itself, cadets and adults from every detachment played key roles in Remembrance parades, church services, and wreath laying ceremonies.
We know that keeping alive the memory of, and sacrifices made by, our servicemen and women is vitally important, and ensuring that younger people never forget is one of our most important responsibilities.
