Curtis appointed last Queen’s cadet

November 29, 2022

An Army Cadet has been given the honour of assisting the Lord-Lieutenant of Moray, Major General Seymour Monro, in his duties as The Monarch’s appointed representative to the area.

Cadet Corporal Curtis Dickson (17), from 1st Battalion The Highlanders’ Elgin Detachment, was appointed as the new Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadet of Moray in a presentation held on Remembrance Sunday following the end of the Lossiemouth Parade. 

Cpl Dickson has been a member of the Army Cadet Force since November 2018. Over this period Curtis has been a valuable asset to the cadets of Elgin. Like many cadets Curtis’ cadet training was affected by the Covid pandemic, but he was still able to continue with some parts of training due to a lot of Army Cadet training being delivered online. Cpl Dickson was very active in ensuring the cadets of Elgin took part in the online training to help them progress with their training.

Although Cpl Dickson only recently received his certificate of appointment, he was appointed to his new position back in April, making him one of the very last cadets to be appointed as Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadet due to the sad passing of Her Majesty The Queen earlier this year.

As the Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadet, Curtis will attend events the Lord-Lieutenant of Moray attends in his capacity as The Monarch’s Representative to the County of Moray. Cpl Dickson took over the position from fellow Elgin Army Cadet Bethany Young.
