HM Lord Lieutenants Cadet 2020

Six Lord Lieutenants Cadets

29 January 2020

We would like to congratulate all our cadets who were selected to represent the battalion as HM Lord Lieutenants Cadet for their County or their County Borough.

The cadets will attend a ceremony at HM The Queens official residence Hillsborough Castle in March where they will be presented with their certificate and badge of office by HM Lord Lieutenants of Northern Ireland.

To be Lord Lieutenants Cadet, you must be of the highest calibre and be nominated firstly by your Detachment Commander and Company Commander, the process moves on then when a meeting is convened by RFCA and attended by HM Lord Lieutenants and they select the cadet after reading their citation.

Each County has a Lord Lieutenant as well as the two County Borough's Belfast and Londonderry. The cadets will accompany their respective Lord Lieutenants on official duties such as Remembrance Sunday and when members of the Royal Family come to Northern Ireland.
