The Battalion has won the BEST PR EVENT category of the ACF Wilkinson Sword Award for Public Relations Excellence in 2016.
The event was our arena display with the theme FUN, FRIENDSHIP, ACTION and ADVENTURE held at the Cambuslang Cadet Training Centre in August. It gave the invited guests the opportunity to see the wide range of activities undertaken by today’s Army Cadets.
The guests included local members of both the Scottish and UK parliaments, local councillors, community and business leaders and representatives of Reserve Forces units in the Battalion area.
The principal guest was Colonel Stephanie Jackman TD, Assistant Commander 51st Infantry Brigade and Headquarters Scotland and in her closing address she said: ‘You have delivered a superb display with amazing examples of cadets achieving. It was quite brilliant.’
