Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadets in Essex take part in local cathedral service.

The five Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadets for Essex read out prayers in Chelmsford Cathedral on Friday evening, at a special service to celebrate the Coronation

Being appointed Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadet is often the highlight of an individual cadet’s career. They are given the rare opportunity to accompany their Lord-Lieutenant at high-profile civic events, military occasions and royal visits, supporting their Lord-Lieutenant and acting as ambassador for their local unit and the wider cadet movement.

Many Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadets must navigate around work or school commitments in order to attend events, and in Essex their participation is coordinated by the lieutenancy with Deputy Lieutenant Jackie Allan.

The Clacton Sea Cadets proudly highlighted their AC Salisbury’s presence at the event on their Facebook page, which was liked by many of the unit’s followers.

3,900 young people in Essex are part of a cadet organisation, benefitting from a broad mix of experiences such as this one. The lieutenancy, which presides over the RFCAs, liaises with local units of the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, Army, Royal Air Force and their associated cadet forces.
