Cadet officer Stephen Smith rewarded for sterling efforts
FROM platoon commander to record fundraiser and even tug-of-war instructor, Gloucester Army cadet officer Stephen Smith has done it all.
His sterling efforts have been rewarded by Dame Janet Trotter, the Lord-Lieutenant of Gloucestershire, who has presented the 46-year-old with her Certificate of Meritorious Service.
Stephen's links with the Army Cadet Force at Eastern Avenue are extra special – that's where he paraded as a schoolboy in the 1980s.
He went on to a 13-year Army career in the Coldstream Guards.
