Rest In Peace, Delyth Clement

We are very sorry to hear of the death of our dear former colleague at the Reserve Forces' and Cadets' Association (RFCA) for Wales, Delyth Clement.


Delyth passed away peacefully on Monday 25 September and hundreds attended her funeral, which was held on Monday 9 October at the Llanelli Crematorium.


After joining RFCA for Wales in 2015, Delyth enjoyed 15 years as a Cadet Admin Assistant until her well-earned retirement in August 2016.


Throughout all aspects of Delyth’s work, she was always fully committed to ensuring Cadets and her colleagues had the best support she was able to give. Delyth was a team player and always made herself available to help others.


It was these character traits, along with loyalty and dedication to Cadets, that saw Delyth awarded the Cadet Force Medal – fitting recognition of her selfless nature, which is fondly remembered and sadly missed.


Initially, Delyth joined Dyfed and Glamorgan Army Cadet Force (ACF) in 1989. She soon became the Detachment Commander of Ammanford Detachment and was later promoted to Staff Sergeant Instructor in 1992.


Delyth was commissioned as an Officer in the ACF as a Second Lieutenant in 1993, then subsequently promoted to Lieutenant in 1995 and finally to Captain in 1998.


Always eager to enhance her skillset, Delyth went to Army Driving School to gain her Category C Driving License, completed an Archery course to become a competent instructor at all levels and a qualified caterer, ensuring Cadets were well fed when training.


One of the bigger tasks Delyth was given was to run Llanelli Training Centre with over a hundred beds and numerous facilities to look after. It was a hands on task she completed to the highest standards, just like when she looked after the Corps of Drums, which was a full time job in itself.


Our thoughts are with her sons Philip and Richard, her sister Ingrid, brother-in-law John and all of her friends and family.


Rest In Peace, Delyth.
