Sword of Honour 01.04.14

Cadet Coxswain Alex Westin-Hardy receives the Priestley Sword for the Senior Cadet from Mrs Daphne Priestley, OBE JP DL, during the ceremonial aspect of the CCF Review day.  Group Captain Nick Sharpe presented him with an engraved miniature of the sword at the post-parade lunch in the Burton Hall, at which lunch the entire party sang “Happy Birthday” to Wing Commander Sergeant whose birthday it also happened to be!  Of that particular event he observed that it was not everyone who had their birthday celebrated in such a way by the Lord-Lieutenant of the County and at least three Deputy Lord-Lieutenants!
