Cadets celebrate 40 years of women in the force


To celebrate 40 years of women in the Cadet Force, female cadets and cadet force adult volunteers were special guests at last month’s Royal Gun Salute in York.

The three cadets and five adult volunteers from Humberside and South Yorkshire Army Cadet Force were centre stage at the event to mark the Queen’s Birthday.

Hannah said: “It was a once in a lifetime opportunity. I was so grateful to  be selected to represent my county, especially as we were also celebrating 40 years of females in the ACF.”
