An Officer and a Gentleman

5 March 2018

The Battalion has had another successful candidate attend the Cadet Forces Commissioning Board (CFCB) at Westbury in Wiltshire.

Staff Sergeant Instructor Paul Kirkwood, the Detachment Commander of our Pipes and Drums Detachment has been selected to receive a Cadet Forces Commission after a sterling display at Westbury.

He will be promoted to 2nd Lieutenant in due course by the Commandant and will now undergo the new Initial Officers Training (IOT) package culminating in a stint at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, the home of the Army's Officer Training for centuries.

Well done Mr Kirkwood!
