Cadets from Brynteg/Bradley Detachment mark the final visit of Welsh Guardsman Sgt Peter Duffy with a special presentation.

Peter and his team from the Welsh Guards were at last able to make one of their special visits to the Welsh Guards badged detachment. As ever the team came up with a number of socially distanced activities which were enjoyed by all.

Peter, who retires from the Army in the autumn, will shortly be handing over the North Wales Welsh Guards team, now part of the 160 Brigade Infantry Engagement Team. To mark the occasion he was presented with a tankard as a thank you for all the hard work over recent years supporting the cadets not only in Brynteg but across North Wales.

Mervyn Jones Detachment Commander said “The cadets wanted to do something special to mark Sgt Duffy's last night so it was their idea to present the Tankard plus we gave him a Brynteg & Bradley T-Shirt with the Welsh Guards logo on it. It was a way of saying a Big Thank You for all he did and L/Cpl Regan Jones who received his Rank Slide from Sgt Duffy made the presentation on behalf of the Detachments.”

Peter said “I was pleasantly surprised to be presented with the Tankard it has been a great pleasure to support cadets’ detachments over recent years, even during the Covid restrictions, particularly those associated with the Welsh Guards. I know the team is looking forward to reengaging with detachments as the restrictions are eased.”
