NORTH Devon Army Cadets joined others from across Devon to parade and put on displays for the Queen and Prince Phillip when they visited Exeter last Thursday.

The Royal visit to the Wyvern Barracks in Exeter started celebrations to mark the 150th anniversary of the Army Cadet Force.

Young people from across North Devon were well represented. The Devon ACF Corps of Drums is based in North Devon and a demonstration of fencing skills was put on by cadets from a local detachment.

The event began celebrations of the anniversary at a regional level, with many local detachments planning their own ideas for marking the occasion.
