Poppy Appeal Honour Walk on the Malvern Hills

Our Student Engineer, Kate Buxton had a great time this weekend being stretchered over the Malvern Hills by the lads from 5 Battalion, Military Intelligence based in Nottingham.  The 12k trek which included a 1518 metre ascent wasn’t just for fun on this hot and sunny day, it was a charity event in aid of the Royal British Legion and honouring William Coltman VC, DCM & Bar, MM & Bar (Stretcher Bearer) on the anniversary of his death, the most decorated other rank in the First World War. 

There were 70 armed forces personnel taking part in the event which was organised in order to raise awareness for the defence health units and it all culminated in a “bun fight” back at base with the buns being kindly donated by Waitrose.
