The Oban Times - - NEWS -

A FORT Wil­liam army cadet has achieved his unit’s first Duke of Ed­in­burgh Award of 2017.

Cadet Lance Cor­po­ral Ewan Mc­Gre­gor, 16, from Fort Wil­liam De­tach­ment, 1st Bat­tal­ion The High­landers, was pre­sented with his bronze award on Wed­nes­day Jan­uary 25 by De­tach­ment Com­man­der RSMI James Standen.

To achieve his bronze award, Ewan had to com­plete four sec­tions: vol­un­teer­ing, skills, phys­i­cal and an ex­pe­di­tion over two days and one night camp­ing out­doors, which he did at the Roth­iemurchus Es­tate near Aviemore last year along­side fel­low Fort Wil­liam cadets Cadet Sergeant Cor­ran Wineberg, Cadet Sergeant Jodie Standen and Cadet Danielle Fer­gu­son, who all achieved their bronze awards at the end of last year.

A spokesper­son from the de­tach­ment said: ‘We are very happy for Ewan and he has al­ready set his sights on the next level – sil­ver.’
