1st Battalion the Royal Welsh

Well work was quite fascinating on Thursday. 1st Battalion the Royal Welsh marched through the campus as part of their homecoming. I think everyone at the college supported it, despite it being freezing outside. I got some pictures for you...

I think what was most apparent to us all was how young the majority of them were. They were the same age as the 'kids' we enrol in September, the students that we do our best to take care of because we feel protective towards them. Yet these men were the same age as many of our students and we send them out to war knowing that some will arrive home in a wooden box. These men are amazing people, and not just the younger ones. 

Welcome home guys.
