Twenty-two new recruits have been welcomed into The Royal Logistic Corps with a prestigious Passing Out Parade at Prince William of Gloucester Barracks in Grantham.

This includes military terminology, drill and how to wear uniform, to physical fitness, weapon handling, first aid, field craft and map reading.

The course is intense, challenging and enjoyable. For those who pass it concludes with a prestigious Passing Out Parade in front of family, friends and unit representatives.
