Some 34 Army Reservists from 49 (East) Brigade have marched on to the parade square at Prince William of Gloucester Barracks, Grantham, in front of family and friends having completed their basic training.
Brigade Commander Brigadier Harry Nickerson inspected the parade and presented a series of awards including the Best Shot, Best Section and Champion Recruit.
The reservists join as the MOD revitalises the Army Reserve and makes significant changes to dramatically improve what is on offer for those who choose to join. This includes better training and
access to equipment used by their regular counterparts and annual paid leave when training as well as on operations.
The soldiers completed a two-week residential course that forms the foundations of the their military career. It teaches them everything they need to know to fulfil their role including military terminology, drill, shooting, physical fitness, weapon handling, first aid, field craft and map reading.
The soldiers will now return to their Reserve units to complete their trade training.
