Hampshire Armed Forces Support

The Lieutenancy strongly supports the Regular and Reserve Forces of the Crown and encourages all Local Authorities to honour the Armed Forces Covenant.

Lord-Lieutenant Cadets

Each year the Lord-Lieutenant appoints several young people to serve as his Cadets.

The Cadets wear a badge of their appointment to denote their role during their year of duty.

Some of the duties of a cadet include:

  • assisting the Lord-Lieutenant as required, often on Parades and at Royal visits
  • acting as ambassadors for their organisations and the young people of Hampshire
