Update: 1:31PM Ten officer cadets were commissioned during the graduating class commissioning parade at the Republic of the Fiji Military Forces Queen Elizabeth Barracks in Nabua this morning.

Families, friends and invited guests were treated to an exceptional display of drill by the 10 officers who completed their nine and a half months officer cadet training.

RFMF commander Brigadier General Mosese Tikoitoga said the officers now hold important roles in the military that come with a lot of challenges.

"You are now ready to take your place as officers of the military force and with this honour you will be entrusted with solemn responsibility to lead men and women to defend the sovereignty and territorial integrity of our beloved Fiji," Brig-Gen Tikoitoga said.

Second Lieutenant Wate Aka of Batiri Village in Cakaudrove recieved the sword of honour award during the commissioning parade.
