Cambridgeshire Army Cadets meet General the Lord Dannett
On Wednesday 2nd October, Cadets from Chesterton and Cambourne Detachments helped behind the scenes and listened to a talk by General the Lord Dannatt GCB CBE MC DL.
The fund raising event was organised by Vanessa Burkitt MA in aid of The Royal Anglian Regiment Benevolent Charity. The event was supported by Catherine Jones (Jewellers) of Cambridge.
The talk was in the world famous Cambridge Union building in Cambridge and therefore provided cadets an opportunity to not only hear a former Chief of the General Staff (Head of the Army until retirement in 2009) speak, but also see inside this renowned building. The General kindly donated a number of his book titled “ Boots on the Ground” which were also signed by him during the evening,
