The Lord Lieutenants' Cadets for 2013/2014 for both Hampshire and for the Isle of Wight have been selected and inaugurated at recent ceremonies in the two counties.

During the awards Ceremonies held in October in The Guildhall Winchester and the Royal Yacht Squadron in Cowes the Lord Lieutenants of the counties place great trust and faith in their new cadets. Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire, Dame Mary Fagan accepted Cdt Sgt Priya Suburayan from 1098 (Gosport) Sqn and Lord Lieutenant of The Isle of Wight, Major General Martin White accepted Cdt Sgt Buyant Brouwer of 1024 (Isle of Wight) Sqn as his cadet. Both cadets are extremely active in their local squadrons, hold gliding scholarships and Duke of Edinburgh's awards as well as being Staff Cadets.

These two cadets are role models and ambassadors for the Air Training Corps in their counties. They will accompany their respective Lord Lieutenants on official business as required but most notably when members of the Royal Family visit their counties.

They, their parents and their units should be be proud of this great honour and award.
