A Ghanaian military officer, Cadet Gershon Anerboi Abbey, will be honoured in the United Kingdom (UK) for displaying exceptional standards during his training.
The event is scheduled to take place on Friday, December 14, 2018 and Cadet Abbey will be presented with the International Sword of Honour by HRH, the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, at the Sovereign’s Parade.
This will signify the successful completion of his training, which took place at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS).
Cadet Abbey, who is among over 160 Ghanaian Army Officers receiving training from the RMAS, will be the first Ghanaian officer to receive the award.
“This award is the premier award available to international officers; it is presented to the best International Officer Cadet and OCdt Abbey, who is the latest of over 160 Ghanaian Army Officers to graduate from Sandhurst, has beaten stiff competition from officers drawn from across the world.
This is an historic achievement by a young officer who has delivered a performance that has been described as ‘superb’,” a statement said.
On his part, the United Kingdom Defence Adviser to Ghana, Lt Col Simon Westlake RM, said “OCdt Abbey’s achievement is inspiring and reflects determination, commitment, but above all professionalism in all areas; Ghana can be proud of this fine young man.
He has not only set an example to his Ghanaian colleagues, but to all officers at RMA Sandhurst.”
OCdt Abbey is expected to return to Ghana shortly after the parade to assume his duties with the Ghana Army.
