Reservist Nick Clegg-Brearton has been helping to prepare military drivers from RAF Leeming for deployment to the Falkland Islands.

Nick combines his role as a corporal in 609 (West Riding) Squadron with a career as a transport manager for Harrogate Borough Council.

He was among a team of expert military driving instructors helping to give seven regulars from the Yorkshire RAF base the skills they will need to tackle the Falklands’ challenging road conditions.

“The knowledge and experience that Nick brings, particularly about civilian legislation and instructional techniques, were priceless,“ said Flight Lieutenant John Roylance.

“His input during this training delivery shows just how much value reservists can add to the wider force.”

Nick is featured in picture 2 at the Driver Training Area, Catterick.
Regular Corporal Ian Garforth is in picture 1.

The Yorkshire Regiment

Members of The Yorkshire Regiment stood shoulder to shoulder with D-Day veteran, Cpl Ray Lord of the East Yorkshire Regiment at a private, [socially-distanced] Service of Remembrance at his #Hull care home.

A group of soldiers from Alma Company, #4YORKS, based in #Hull joined Ray to commemorate #Remembrance2020 in a short service led by Padre, Maj Ben Norton also from #Hull, supported by a Bugler from the The Band of the Yorkshire Regiment.

Leading the #4YORKS contingent was Capt Dave Branny, Second in Command of Alma Company, #Hull. He said; “It’s a great privilege and honour to be able to be here today with Ray to join him in paying tribute to the friends and colleagues he lost in #WW2. We also remember, in particular, the 18 servicemen from the Regiment who have died on active duty, and the 36 who have died in service since we formed on 6th June 2006. We will also remember the Veterans from our antecedent Regiments who fought in campaigns across the world, and in particular WW1, WW2, Korea and the many other operations that have taken place since then. For some of my young soldiers, the opportunity to talk with Ray and share this poignant moment together will play an important part in their development and future careers, and something none of us will forget”. 4th Infantry Brigade British Army Hull Live RFCA Yorkshire and The Humber
