Henley Army Cadet Appointment as Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadet for Oxfordshire

Cadet Company Serjeant Major (CSM) Tallulah Scott from Henley Detachment has been appointment as the Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadet for Oxfordshire.

The role of the Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadet is to accompany the Lord-Lieutenant when they attend local community events & ceremonies. As well as representing the Cadet Forces & Public Speaking.

A number of cadets were nominated for this role, along with a citation, to which Oxfordshire ACF Cadet Commandant, Colonel Peterson decided that Cadet CSM Scott should receive this appointment. The Lord-Lieutenant may have only one cadet from each of the cadet services (Combined Cadet Force, Royal Air Force Air Cadets, Sea Cadets & ACF) to which Cadet CSM Scott is now Oxfordshire Army Cadet Force Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadet.

2nd Lieutenant Mel Haynes, Henley Detachment Commander said “Cadet CSM Scott has been in the ACF for over four years and is one of the county’s most senior cadet. She is an outstanding leader and has been a valuable asset to the company during this year’s lockdown; assisting and teaching on virtual parade nights. She will be a great asset and link to the communities alongside the Lord-Lieutenant and we can’t wait to see what else she achieves.”
