This week has been bittersweet in Cadets Branch. On Friday we said goodbye to Brigadier Mark Christie, OBE who leaves us after 18 months with the Army Cadets. For those of you who have been fortunate enough to work with or meet him, you’ll know what an awesome individual and leader he is. Brigadier Mark, always has time for a chat, whether that’s about Army Cadet issues, or one of his favourite bands – the Jam. We wish him well as he prepares to transition from the Army to civilian life with his wife Clair and family.
Brigadier Mark, doesn’t leave us in the lurch however. Most of you will already know that his post will be taken over by Colonel Stuart Williams OBE, who like Brigadier Mark is an inspirational leader and a passionate advocate of the Army Cadets. We hope you join us in wishing both Brigadier Mark and Colonel Stuart all the best for the coming months and years.
