Highest honour awarded
Each year, the Lord-Lieutenant of East Sussex appoints several young people to serve as his Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadets. This year, Eastbourne College Year 13 pupil Harry Beeching has been selected for this coveted role.
When on duty, Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadets wear a distinctive sash with the badge of their appointment, to denote their role. They assist the Lord-Lieutenant as required – often on parade for Royal visits – and act as ambassadors for their organisations and the young people of East Sussex. It is the highest honour that can be bestowed on a cadet in this country.
Sgt Beeching will receive his award at a presentation in October officiated by the Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex Mr Peter Field. He will be accompanied by his family and representatives from the College. This is the second time in five years that Eastbourne College has seen one of its cadets receive this prestigious accolade.
