Mrs Spence said that the cadets were excellent, a real credit to their Corps and she very much appreciated their attendance and support. She hoped that all four Cadets found the experience rewarding and interesting, and that they enjoyed their day.

Cadet RSM Darcie Tegerdine from Whittlesey said “It was a tremendous experience to meet and talk to Prince Charles - it's something I will never forget and was only made possible by being a member of Cambridgeshire Army Cadet Force.”
