Detachment Commander 2nd Lieutenant Thomas Fearn commented: “2016/2017 has been a great year for the detachment; I’m incredibly proud of all of the cadets in Henley, without them there would be no Henley Detachment and we wouldn’t have achieved everything we had done this year. The start of our new year means that anyone moving into Year 8 at school can now join our detachment, I eagerly await their arrival to continue growing Henley’s premier Cadet Force!”
