Chris visits our soldiers
SOLDIERS met a top radio presenter when the South East’s regiment played a starring role in a national show.
BBC Radio 2’s Chris Evans visited troops serving with the 2nd Battalion of The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment (2 PWRR) when he aired his Drivetime Show live from the battalion’s base in Dhekelia, Cyprus.
One Folkestone soldier who met Chris Evans was Private James King who has served with B Company 2 PWRR for three years.
Private King, 19, returned to Cyprus from Afghanistan last month after a successful fourmonth tour of the country.
He will spend Christmas in Cyprus but will be returning to his mum and girlfriend in Folkestone in time for New Year.
