Lance Corporal Shanwayne Stephens


My career highlight so far

A career highlight for me so far was performing a continuity drill display in front of her Majesty the Queen at the Royal Albert hall for the Festival of Remembrance. The hours of rehearsals that go into doing a flawless performance all paid off at the end of the performance after present arms facing the royal box and seeing the smile and applause of her Majesty.

The best thing about my current role

The best part of my current role as a Regiment Gunner is the variety of activities I could be doing from day to day. For example I can go from being in the field on exercise training for combat situation, to the forecourt of Buckingham Palace on ceremonial duties, to engaging with the public on demonstration stands at the Royal International Air Tattoo.
