Congratulations to OF Velocity C Airey (Inv-Ar 2000-2009) who has been awarded the highly coveted Sword of Honour at The Sovereign’s Parade. We recently received the news on behalf of the Commandant of The Royal Military Academy who wished to inform Fettes College that our former student Velocity was awarded the best cadet of the intake. They wrote “The Sword of Honour was awarded to Senior Under Officer Velocity Charlotte Airey Considered by the Commandant to be the Best Cadet in the Army Commissioning Course 203, she is to commission into The Royal Lancers.”
The Sovereign’s Parade took place on Friday 6th August with Prime Minister Mr Boris Johnson representing Her Majesty the Queen.
At Fettes, Velocity was an active member of the CCF participating in the Fettes College CCF 100th anniversary celebrations in 2008 and was awarded a University Army Scholarship with admission to Sandhurst in the same year. On behalf of the Fettes community, we are incredibly proud of Velocity for this achievement and wish her all the best for the future.
