Our last minute delivery of cap badges to replace those missing ensured that Matthew was ready for the ceremony where he was selected as one of the Lord Lieutenant Cadets for Devon. Each year the county’s top Cadets are recommended to The Lord-Lieutenant and those selected are given the opportunity to accompany him to and assist at various events and occasions, including royal visits and civic ceremonies. They were chosen for showing exceptional dedication and skill at their respective units and also for their work within the local community.

Looking very smart in his Future Army Dress Uniform and Rifles Cap badge, Matthew attended the ceremony on 21st October 2014.

Here is the email we received from Matthew’s Parents after the ceremony.

“Just wanted to say a huge thankyou to you for rushing through our order the other day and ensuring that our son’s missing cap badges (I think Cadets just forgot to order them from stores!) were sorted out at last minute, all thanks to your fantastic customer service.  I have attached a photo showing our son in his full uniform after the ceremony last night, when he became one of the four (and the only one from the ACF) Lord Lieutenant’s Cadets for Devon for the next 12 months. 

Having the cap badges in time saved the day and completed his uniform so that he really looked the part.  Can we also commend Interlink who pulled out all the stops to make sure we got the delivery on time.

Thank you again.  We made sure to tweet about it too and although we already recommend people to use you for kit, we will be singing your praises even higher after this week.

All the best

Alec and Jo Palmer (and a very grateful Cadet CSM Matthew Palmer!)”
