PRESENTATION OF THE LORD LIEUTENANTS' CERTIFICATES @ HILLSBOROUGH ON 25/03/17
Each year in the Spring all the Lord Lieutenants in Northern Ireland together present certificates to adult instructors and other staff from all 3 military cadet services, who have shown particular strengths far beyond the normal call of duty. These adults can be quite young or close to retirement but all have shown strong leadership and have been a very special example to others. At the same occasion the Lord Lieutenants also present certificates to their new cadets. These cadets, who are normally aged 16 to 18, will serve their respective Lord Lieutenants for 1 year & will attend many of the functions that their Lord Lieutenant is invited to. The Cadets are chosen as the most outstanding cadet from all 3 services in their county and the Lord Lieutenant benefits from their assistance & they benefit from an extremely interesting year of special events & the opportunity to meet some very interesting & important people.
