The latest group of front-line soldiers marched off the parade square at the Infantry Training Centre Catterick to mark the end of their time as trainee Guardsmen.

Nearly 30 soldiers from 17 Platoon passed out as the British Army Band Catterick played in unison to the inspection.

Proud family and friends gathered to witness their loved ones parade after months of hard work and dedication.

After a tough but exciting 28 weeks of training, the newly qualified Guardsmen will go on to take up posts in either London or Windsor, where they will have the honour and privilege of taking part in His Majesty The King’s Birthday Parade in June.

30 new trained soldiers for the five Guards battalions! I wonder how many more they need, given the outflow due to poor retention.
