The following is a short article written by Cadet Warrant Officer Grant of 2418 (Sherwood) Squadron about her visit to St James Palace to be presented with her Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Certificate.
CWO Grant’s trip to the palace
“On The 28th November 2013 I went with my brother and ex-cadet (now in the Royal Navy) Sub Lieutenant Grant to St James Palace to receive my Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s award.At the presentation we got to meet Prince Phillip, The Duke of Edinburgh himself. This day was very important both of us as we have been working towards it for a long time, and to have finally achieved it after 5 year.
Receiving this award has given me a great sense of achievement. As I now hope to help many more cadets on the squadron get through the same award and go to the Palace as I did”
