Burnham teenager gets Royal honour in 2014
A 17-YEAR-OLD boy from Burnham will have the honour of meeting any royal visitors who come to Somerset next year.
Cadet Serjeant Owen Bishop, a member of the Somerset Cadet Battalion (The Rifles) Army Cadet Force, is one of five cadets chosen by the Lord-Lieutenant of Somerset, Lady Elizabeth Gass, to accompany her on royal visits and other official engagements in 2014.
The five cadets were hand-picked from cadet organisations across the county, after showing “exceptional dedication and skill at their respective units.”
Lady Gass said: “I would like to congratulate the young cadets as it is most impressive to hear what they have achieved at such a young age.”
