Rifleman Richard Hunt has won an army award after finishing his recruit training. Rifleman Hunt, 20, from Kirk Sandall, has successfully completed the Combat Infantryman’s Course at the Infantry Training Centre in Catterick, North Yorkshire.

His platoon commander, Captain Will Pullan, said: ‘Rifleman Hunt has been awarded the Best Recruit prize. His attitude and commitment to the course have been outstanding. He has initiative and he does that little bit extra. He will make a first rate Rifleman when he gets to his battalion.’ Rifleman Hunt will receive his award at the pass out parade ceremony at the Infantry Training Centre on 11 October.

Rifleman Hunt said: ‘I was going to join when I was 18, but I didn’t go through with it. Then I spent two years getting NVQs in construction, but I really wanted to be a soldier so I made sure I got in at my second application. Overall the course at Catterick is good: the second part of the course is the toughest, but it is also the most enjoyable. My parents have always been supportive about me joining. I sent them a text telling them I’d won this award and my mum rang back straight away to tell me well done.’

Rifleman Hunt will complete two weeks of driver training and then take some well-earned leave before joining his new unit the 5th Battalion The Rifles in Germany.
