Reception for the Reserve Forces and Cadets

Sir David BrewerThursday evening was the reception for the Reserve Forces and Cadets in Greater London at Yeomanry House, followed by a curry supper.

The AGM part was a little slow (particularly since we were sat on hard chairs), but then the Lord Lieutenant, Sir David Brewer CMG JP (and former Lord Mayor of the City of London) presented the awards to the cadets and reserves, and everyone was suddenly very alert.  The stories behind some of the awards was very interesting as were the presentations from adult members of the cadets and reserves who described how they balanced their lives between family, work and their voluntary service.

There was a good turn out of Masters there and it was nice to see them stepping foot out of the City occasionally.
