Jayne Morley, 18, is a Cadet Warrant Officer with 2160 (Sleaford) Squadron Air Training Corps, who has been appointed the Lord Lieutenant’s Air Cadet for Lincolnshire.

One cadet is selected from each of the Air, Army, Combined and Sea Cadet units in the county as part of a nationwide scheme.

Jayne was selected for the position in competition with cadets from the 18 other Air Training Corps Squadrons in Lincolnshire and will join with her counterparts from the other cadet organisations in what is considered one of the highest honours a cadet can achieve.

As the Lord Lieutenants Air Cadet, she will accompany the Queen’s representative, Toby Dennis, the Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire, on a number of his official engagements throughout the coming year.

Jayne, who joined the Air Cadets five years ago, has had the ambition to achieve this distinction from early on in her cadet career. This is the fifth time in the last 12 years that a cadet from Sleaford has been honoured with this appointment, a reflection of the high standard achieved by the squadrons’ cadets.

Jayne said: “I am deeply honoured to have been selected for this role and I will do my utmost to uphold the high standard achieved by my predecessors.”
