Each year, the Lord-Lieutenant appoints a Lord Lieutenant’s Cadet who accompanies him on ceremonial duties throughout the year.

When on duty, Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadets wear a distinctive badge of their appointment to denote their role and assist the Lord-Lieutenant as required – often on parade for Royal visits – and act as ambassadors for their organisations.
