First passing out parade takes place under reign of King Charles

A group of soldiers celebrated the culmination of 28 weeks of training at ITC Catterick, with a passing out parade – becoming the first under HM King Charles III's reign.

More than 50 new members of the infantry from the Infantry Training Centre Catterick (ITC) marched off the parade square in front of friends and family, and will now head to careers in the field army.

With the completion of the parade, the 52 men and three women who passed off the square will take some leave and have time to reflect on their achievements of the past six months, before reporting for duty in their new regiments.
