Each year, the Lord-Lieutenant appoints 3 to 4 young people to serve as his Lord- Lieutenant’s Cadets. They are drawn from the Sea Cadets, Army Cadets, the Air Training Corps and the Combined Cadet Force. They assist the Lord-Lieutenant as required (often on parade for Royal visits) and they act as ambassadors for their organisations.
The 2019/20 Lord-Lieutenant's Cadets are:
- Cadet Warrant Officer Benjamin Hudson – Air Training Corps
- Petty Officer Cadet Hannah Barber – Sea Cadet Corps
- Sergeant Brandon Grainger – Army Cadet Force
- Sergeant Esther Woods – Combined Cadet Force
