Army's newest officers pass out in front of US general at Sandhurst

The Sovereign's Parade has marked the end of 44 weeks of training for the newly commissioned officer cadets.

More than 100 officer cadets have commissioned into the British Army during a ceremony at Sandhurst.

The Sovereign's Parade has marked the end of 44 weeks of training for the new officers, with 134 people, including 28 international cadets, passing out in Berkshire.

The event, held three times a year at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, sees cadets inspected by the sovereign or her representative.

The entire Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, which is around 800 cadets, were on parade, with US Army Chief of Staff, General James C. McConville representing the Queen.

Gen McConville was welcomed to London earlier this week with a ceremonial military display.

For those graduating officer caders who have excelled during their training at Sandhurst, there is the chance to win an award - the latest award winners were posted on Twitter this morning, prior to the passing out ceremony.
