One of our Caithness Company instructors has awarded the Cadet Forces Medal for her service to the cadets of Caithness. Staff Sergeant Instructor Elizabeth Hendry (36), from Wick Detachment, was presented with the medal on Wednesday evening, which recognises 12 years of service to the cadets.
SSI Hendry joined the Army Cadet Force in June 2005 as an instructor with the Caithness Company Detachment. Her average detachment night includes teaching the cadets of Wick lessons from the Cadet Training Syllabus for them to progress on their Star awards. Elizabeth was awarded her medal at the detachmen by our Battalion’s Commandant, Colonel Iain Cassidy.
The Cadet Forces Medal is awarded to all officers and uniformed Adult Instructors in recognition of long service of proved capacity in the Cadet Forces. 12 years reckonable service is required for award of the medal, with an additional clasp for every 6 years of further service to the Cadet Force.
