A Male cadet at the Sovereign’s Parade.
Three Sovereign’s Parades are held each year in front of Old College to mark the passing out of the graduating cadets. This is the final parade of the senior division.
The swords used to be made by Wilkinson Sword but when they closed in 2005 the manufacture of the swords transferred to Pooley Sword a tradional cutler who supply swords, Dirks and lances to the British armed forces and many Commonwealth overseas defence forces.
The Sword of Honour is awarded to the outstanding cadet in his or her class.
