A JUNIOR soldier from Huddersfield received a top prize when he graduated from the Army Foundation College in Harrogate.
Pte Josh Sykes, 17, was awarded the prize for the Best Junior Soldier Adjutant General’s Corps at the prestigious college, which caters for 16-year-olds.
Josh joined the Army Foundation College in September last year for a 42-week long course combining vocational education and military training.
He has gained National Vocational Qualifications in Information Technology and Key Skills, as well as a Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award.
“I am thrilled to have been awarded this prize,” said Josh, a former pupil of Colne Valley High School.
“I feel that I have worked hard, but could not imagine any kind of reward. I would like to give my thanks to all who have helped.”
