Thirty cadets from across the country visited St James’s Palace, London, where they received their Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Awards.
Rosalind Savage MBE, who was the first woman to row solo across three oceans - the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian - presented the awards.
Cadets shared their experiences with the Patron of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE), HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. HRH took the opportunity to congratulate the cadets on their successes, listened about their DofE journeys and asked if they conducted any part of their expedition on the water.
The cadets deserved a great evening after putting 12-18 months of hard work and dedication into securing their Gold awards.
The presentation took place on Tuesday 29 November.
