This week we were joined by W01 Steve Parker, The Home Command and SJC Command Corporal Major for our Tuesday Takeover on Instagram. The session was great and W01 Parker was given some great questions to answer.

Next Tuesday (16 June) will be with Corps of Army Music. You can check them out on Instagram ahead of the takeover @corps_army_music
