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.

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. These awards are intended to supplement Honours bestowed by HM The Queen in the New Year and Birthday Honours Lists, and, in precedence, rank after such awards.

Each year, the presentation of the Lord-Lieutenants’ Awards for the four counties of Yorkshire are facilitated by the Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association for Yorkshire and The Humber (RFCA YH). These are split into two presentation seasons with awards to Lord-Lieutenants’ Reservists and Cadet Instructors in the spring and awards to HM Lord-Lieutenants’ Cadets in the autumn.

The dates for the Lord-Lieutenant Reservists and Cadet Instructors presentations have now been announced and are posted below along with the closing date for applications for an invitation.
