Detachment Commander Lieutenant Thomas Fearn commented: “2017 / 2018 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 – they’ll be joining the best Detachment in Oxfordshire as proven by our awards.”
