Grad­u­a­tion suc­cess for Of­fi­cer Cadet

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your News -

On Fri­day, Jules Far­row from Hunt­ing­don joined hun­dreds of Of­fi­cer Cadets in a pres­ti­gious grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony at the world renowned Royal Mil­i­tary Academy Sand­hurst. Pass­ing out from Sand­hurst marks the com­ple­tion of 44 weeks of in­ten­sive mil­i­tary and aca­demic train­ing, com­bined with ad­ven­tur­ous train­ing and sport­ing chal­lenges.

With friends and fam­ily in the au­di­ence, 24-year-old Sec­ond Lieu­tenant Far­row took part in the Sov­er­eign’s Pa­rade in front of Her Majesty’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives. The pa­rade is a key mile­stone for ev­ery Army Of­fi­cer and has been run at the end of each term for over 200 years.

By the time Of­fi­cer Cadets have grad­u­ated they en­joy im­me­di­ate lead­er­ship re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, where they will be in charge of a pla­toon of 30 soldiers, man­ag­ing their skills, work­loads and wel­fare.

2Lt Far­row, who will be join­ing the Royal Welsh Reg­i­ment, s aid: “Be­ing part of an elite group of peo­ple that have grad­u­ated as Bri­tish Army Of­fi­cers from Sand­hurst makes me ex­tremely proud. It’s one of the big­gest chal­lenges I have ever un­der­taken, but also one of the most rewarding.

“The train­ing and sup­port I have re­ceived has been ex­cel­lent and I can­not wait to start putting it into prac­tise with the Royal Welsh, and to be given the chance to make my con­tri­bu­tion on op­er­a­tions, adventure t rain­ing, and mis­sions over­seas.”

Ma­jor Gen­eral Paul Nan son, Com­mand ant Royal Mil­i­tary Academy Sand­hurst, said: “Con­grat­u­la­tions to all our Of­fi­cer Cadets. I look for­ward to see­ing each of them re­alise their full po­ten­tial as they em bark on their ca­reers with the Army.”
