He also honoured two reserves who each used their skills to save a person’s life, a third reserve with 30 years of military service and three cadet force adult volunteers who have each made massive contributions to the cadet movement in the area.

“I am also delighted to recognise the contribution made by the region’s cadet force adult volunteers,” he continued.

“They deserve our deepest gratitude for the time they give up to help young people gain access to the wide range of opportunities made possible by the cadet movement.

“In addition, I am honoured to recognise the contribution of some of the country’s reservists who combine lives and careers in the civilian world with valuable roles in the military.

“The three reserves recognised now represent the very best of our reserve forces and have shown exceptional dedication and commitment to their respective units.”
