The annual Lord-Lieutenants’ Awards for reservists, cadet force adult volunteers (CFAVs), cadets and employees of the Reserve Forces and Cadet Organisations of the Armed Forces are recognised as laudatory honours throughout the Ministry of Defence.

Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenants are the representatives of the Crown for each county in the United Kingdom. Men or women of all backgrounds, they are appointed directly by Her Majesty the Queen, on the advice of the Prime Minister.

Each year, the presentation of the Lord-Lieutenants’ Awards for Yorkshire and The Humber are facilitated by Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association for Yorkshire and The Humber (RFCAYH) and hosted in one of our reserve or cadet units.
