CADETS ATTEND MEMORIAL SERVICE

A number of Cadets from Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Rutland Army Cadet Force (ACF) have attended a memorial service for Lance Corporal Harry White.

On the 28th of August 1914 the 12th Lancers made a charge with lances against the Prussian Dragoon Guards near the village of Moÿ.  This was the last, or one of the last, such events in modern warfare. Lance Corporal Harry Knight was amongst the Lancers who fought and died during this historic battle.

As part of Op Reflect, Cadets and adult volunteers from LNR ACF’s D Company and B Squadron attended a short service for Lance Corporal Harry Knight. The service included eulogies derived from news articles and a number of appropriate readings.

LNR ACF have created a video to remember Lance Corporal Harry White this can be viewed by visiting https://vimeo.com/104788638
