Henley Army Cadets Achieve Promotions

Henley Detachment’s very own Tallulah Scott and Jamie Forehand have both recently been promoted to the two most senior ranks achievable within the Army Cadet Force (ACF). This is a huge an achievement within the ACF and for their own personal development.

Tallulah Scott has recently promoted to the rank of Cadet Regimental Serjeant Major (RSM) after a series of interviews by the County Commandant. After 5 years in the ACF, RSM Scott is now the highest achieving cadet within the county and holds the Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadet Appointment.  She now has the added responsibilities leading regimental parades, developing senior cadets and having an input into the cadets training and development.

There is more success to follow at Henley; Jamie Forehand has been promoted to Cadet Company Serjeant Major (CSM), this is the highest rank within Nivelle Company (South Oxfordshire). CSM Forehand, who has been in the ACF for four and a half years, was interview by the Company Officer Commanding. Jamie has proven repeatedly that he is suitable for this role by leading parading, developing cadet’s leadership skills and taken on projects such as the research on the Battle of Cassel, which has close links to the Henley Detachment.

Finally, a huge thank you to newly promoted Serjeant Charlie James, has taken on the role of substitute Standard Bearer for the Henley & Peppard Branch for the Royal British Legion.

The Army Cadet Force is a national youth organisation sponsored and supported by the Ministry of Defence for 12 to 18-year olds; Army Cadets provides a challenging and varied syllabus based on military themes. Henley Army Cadet Force parade every Wednesday from 1900 to 2130 at The Drill Hall on Friday Street and are currently looking for new Cadets and Adult Volunteers, feel free to come along and experience something new.
