Lord-Lieutenants Cadets

The Lord-Lieutenant has a role to play in supporting the military in London: regulars, reserves and cadets. To that end, he is President of the Greater London Reserve Forces’ and Cadets Association (GLRFCA): a non-political, not-for-profit organisation that supports the Volunteer Reserve Forces of the Navy, Army and Air Force, and the Cadets within Greater London. They provide an essential representative link between the military forces and the local community, raise awareness of the benefits and skills gained through part-time military service and assist with recruiting. They also maintain the Reserve Forces and Cadets estate.

Every year the Lord-Lieutenant appoints three Cadets from the Sea, Army and Air Cadets across the city to help him perform his duties.

These Cadets are selected in recognition of the outstanding example and devotion to duty they have displayed, as a Cadet and member of the Community. During the next 12 months they will assist the Lord-Lieutenant in his duties and will attend great occasions.
