Each year, the Lord-Lieutenant appoints 3 to 4 young people to serve as his Lord- Lieutenant’s Cadets. They are drawn from the Sea Cadets, Army Cadets, the Air Training Corps and the Combined Cadet Force. They assist the Lord-Lieutenant as required (often on parade for Royal visits) and they act as ambassadors for their organisations.
The 2016/17 Lord-Lieutenant's Cadets are:
- Flight Sergeant Luke Ford (Air cadets)
- Cadet Bdr Abigail Tattersfield (Army)
- Leading Cadet Owen Cox (Navy)
