Major Linda Johnston (St Bees School CCF 1995-2015).
Sandy Rogers (Ex-RSM St Bees Combined Cadet Force) writes:
“Linda, who served as RSM of the Cadet Force, died suddenly in her sleep on Monday, 12th of September. She will always be remembered by many St Beghians for her stalwart service to the school’s CCF where she served for two years as Contingent Commander until the closure of the school in 2015.
Linda’s main passion was to help cadets achieve awards and certificates in BTEC, First Aid, and most especially close to her heart, the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, to which she devoted many hours ensuring cadets had the best opportunity to achieve the Bronze, Silver or Gold Award Levels.
Linda will be greatly missed by all who knew her and most especially by her two daughters, Linda and Stacey and their families, and her ever faithful Golden Labrador, Duke.”
