Lt Col Jamie Stuart presented with the Joint Commanders’ Commendation for his service as Commanding Officer of the UK Task Force in South Sudan

Initially the post of Lord-Lieutenant was a military appointment and this remained so for several centuries. In Moray 39 Engineer Regiment are based at Kinloss Barracks and there is an RAF base at Lossiemouth. Both make a vital contribution to the defence of the United Kingdom and in assisting the civil authorities in time of emergency such as the COVID-19 pandemic. They also make a significant contribution to the local communities and the economy in Moray.  There are strong connections with Reserve and Cadet units.

Royal Air Force Reservist from 2622 (Highland) Squadron has been presented with an award for Meritorious Service by the Lord-Lieutenant of Moray, Major General The Hon Seymour Monro.

They are chosen in conjunction with the RFCA and are the star cadets in the various cadet forces. During their year as Lord-Lieutenant’s Cadet they will attend the Lord-Lieutenant on a wide range of his duties.
