3PWRR – Recruit Ryan Bourke
“Having been born and lived my entire life in Medway, while also having always had the aspiration to join the army, the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment allowed me to join the army reserve whilst also allowing me to serve in a local unit. Currently a recruit, I have experienced various different aspects of life in the army reserves from training on battalion weekends with other company’s to developing skills on parade nights. Both of which help to prepare me for the next phases of my training in which I am greatly looking forward to.
I am particularly looking forward to beginning my phase Alpha training and further developing my skills as a soldier. Being a member of the army reserves has greatly improved my confidence, as a result of working within a team which has benefited me in both my private and social life while also giving me a great sense of pride from being apart of my local reserve unit.”
