Passing out is a time to celebrate
SOUTHPORT Officer Cadet Daniel Capps, 26, celebrated his graduation in a passing out parade at the world renowned Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.
The ceremony took place in front of the Chief of the General Staff, Sir Nick Carter KCB CBE DSO ADC Gen, on Friday, April 13.
