A South Norfolk group of cadets has joined forces with a national charity.
The Diss Branch of the Army Cadets joined with the Diss Branch of the Royal British Legion in a ceremony on Wednesday, October 25.
Certificates of affiliation were signed by the Officer-in-Charge of the cadets, Peter Frewin, and the chairman of the Diss branch of the Royal Legion, Ralph Boone.
Each of the cadets on parade were awarded with arm badges that show the groups have been joined.
The Royal British Legion headquarters encourage and sponsor youth affiliation in order for young people to recognise and give support to the work of the Legion.
