The Army Cadets is playing a great role within the Coronation of King Charles III and excitement is building. The cadets are practicing their musical skills and banner drill. The Army Cadets have been gearing up to put on an impressive display of their skills and talents. The Duke of York's Military School CCF has been invited to send a band of 34 Cadets, to perform in Parliament Square and also have the honour of escorting the Banners of all 6 Cadet Forces, being carried by a senior cadet from each cadet force, as well as the Standards of The Royal British Legion, for the Coronation and over Westminster Bridge.
This is a significant responsibility that highlights the trust and respect that the Cadet Forces have earned over the years. It is heartening to see the younger generation stepping up to play such an important role in this historic event.
