Officer Cadets on CC 192 were due to be commissioned in April 2020, with the usual Parade attended by a Sovereign's representative and all their friends and family, just as Cadets had done in the previous 192 Sovereign's Parades. However, this didn't happen as the Academy and Cadets under training found themselves in the midst of the global covid pandemic.
Instead of a Sovereign's Parade the Officer Cadets from CC 192 saw their time at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst end with a simple Commissioining Parade. For the first time since 1946, Officer Cadets wore combats to their parade. There were no guests, no band, no horse and no Sovereign's Representative. Instead RMAS Commandant, Maj Gen Duncan Capps, took the Parade and Officer Cadets exchanged berets and marched into Old College to the sound of a single beating drum.
