The annual Lord-Lieutenants’ Certificates of Meritorious Service for Reservists, Cadet Force Adult Volunteers (CFAVs), Cadets and employees of the Reserve Forces and Cadet Organisations are recognised as laudatory honours throughout the Ministry of Defence. 

Lord-Lieutenants’ Certificates are an important means of recognising valuable service. As well as public recognition, the certificates are much appreciated and valued by the individual.

Lord-Lieutenants present recipients with their Certificates at various award ceremonies throughout the Lowlands. 

Lowland RFCA is delighted to reveal this year’s recipients.
