Lt Col ( Rtd) David Denson TD replied on behalf of the Guests with particular reference to the professionalism and value of the Officers and NCO’s in providing the many opportunities to the Cadets. He also acknowledged the support the County gave to the Royal Anglian Regt Association-Cambridgeshire and importance of maintaining the tradition and memory of the Cambridgeshire Regtiment.

It was an excellent evening mainly due to the efforts of SMI M. De’Ath.
