Minister Shekerinska Attends the Sovereign’s Parade at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst – Macedonian Graduate Trendevski Was Presented the International Sword by Prince Harry

Minister of Defence Radmila Shekerinska attended the traditional parade ceremony of the graduates of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, where the officer cadet from the Republic of Macedonia, Milosh Trendevski, was received the honours as the best of all international students.

Milosh Trendevski received a recognition from Prince Harry who presented him the “International Sword” for his highest results at Sandhurst.

“I am honoured to be here today in the UK at the traditional ceremonial parade of the graduates of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, where the Republic of Macedonia can boast and proudly say that our cadet, Milosh Trendovski, not only graduated from this prestigious military academy, but was proclaimed the best of all international students in the class. The Republic of Macedonia and its Army are as good as its soldiers, its NCOs and its officers. Therefore, we will continue to invest in knowledge, training, opportunities for further education in and outside of Macedonia. And in this way, with these successes, we prove that our Army can stand equally alongside the armies of the NATO member states, and that Macedonia’s place is in NATO. This is our strategic goal, and we need friends, supporters to attain this goal. And we have them here in Britain at the highest level” said Minister Shekerinska.

Milosh Trendevski is a second lieutenant of the Army of the Republic of Macedonia. Prior to going to school in Sandhurst, he graduated from the Military Academy “General Mihailo Apostolski”.

At the Sovereign’s parade, which is held for the 185th time this year, the cadets are regularly reviewed by a representative of the British royal family. The first ceremonial parade was held on 14 July, 1948, in front of King George VI. The parade is held three times a year.
