Suffolk’s top cadets and officers were recognised with awards from the county’s Lord Lieutenant Lady Euston at a ceremony in Ipswich.
They gathered at the Army Reserve Centre in Ipswich on March 4 with family and friends to see Lady Euston give out special awards for Meritorious Service, as well as appointing three Lord Lieutenant Cadets.
Staff Sergeant John Tillotson said: “Those awarded tonight were nominated because of their volunteer work or for going above and beyond the call of duty.
“These awards are a high recognition of the work of officers and cadets.”
Chaplain George Jamiec, Mildenhall & District Sea Cadet Corps, Lieutenant Robert Theobald, Beccles Unit Sea Cadet Corps, Warrant Officer Mark Ellis, 188 (Ipswich) Sqn Royal Air Force Cadets and Corporal Matthew Hardy, 6 Regiment Army Air Corps were all recognised by the Lord Lieutenant for meritorious service.
