Support from 3 Royal Welsh Reservist during Autumn Camp has been recognised.
Lance Corporal Andy Moore, from D Company 3 Royal Welsh, was attached to Clwyd and Gwynedd’s Autumn Camp in Nesscliff where he supported our senior cadet company. He was, without doubt, the absolute epitome of a professional reservist. From the moment he arrived on day one until his departure on the last day, he gave his all, in everything that was asked of him.
He was a key enabler in all of our senior company activities and his counsel was very well received by both the Company Commander and 2ic. It is a testament, to his ability, commitment, enthusiasm, and selflessness that both adults and cadets across C&G ACF held him in such high esteem and were keen to utilise him.
If anyone was initially sceptical of his infantry/soldiering ability, he is RAMC badged, they were soon proven wrong and easily won over. Whether it was map reading, fieldcraft, first aid, or general soldiering skills, Cpl Moore never once shied away from stepping up and taking the lead in ensuring it was delivered well.
Andy’s Commanding Officer Colonel Mark Powell said “I was delighted to receive an outstanding letter of appreciation for LCpl Moore contribution to the cadet camp. Supporting the ACF is one of my principle lines of effort and it’s great to see that our efforts are being appreciated and that we are making a difference.”
Andy said “I really enjoyed working with the ACF; it was a pleasure to work with the staff who were always willing to embrace new ideas and give their all to making sure the cadets thoroughly enjoyed themselves. But more importantly, if the cadets hadn't brought the spirit and passion to learn, it would never have been the success it was.”
Such was the impact that Andy made, the Commandant Colonel Martin L Craven awarded him a Commandants Coin on the final evening of camp in front of the whole of C&G ACF. An award that the Commandant does not give out lightly, particularly amongst the adult cohort. Col Martin thanked LCpl Moore for his considerable efforts during the camp helping make a real difference.
