The Lord Lieutenant of Herefordshire, Lady Darnley, was joined by Major Patrick Darling (High Sherriff of Herefordshire), Major General Malcolm Wood (chairman of the Army Cadet Force Association), Brigadier Gerhard Wheeler (Commanding 143 West Midlands Brigade) and Brigadier Martin Vine (Honorary Colonel).
