To all of our distinguished guests, adult volunteers, reserves, cadets, families and friends.
Following the recent outbreak of Covid-19, we have, as you might imagine, postponed this year’s Association and Lord-Lieutenants’ Spring Awards ceremony which was due to be held on 19th March 2020. We hope that all those intending to attend received the notifications that we sent out. We will announce a new date for these awards in due course.
On behalf of the Lord-Lieutenant of Greater London, Sir Kenneth Olisa OBE, and the Chairman of the RFCA, Brigadier Marc Overton, we would still like to publicly recognise the 39 members of the Reserve Forces and Cadet movements from across all three services and have, therefore, listed this year’s winners below. For some interesting viewing we have also released our latest Greater London RFCA video below.
Many thanks for your continued cooperation and support.
