Sgt Chris Morgan entered the British Army Photographic Competition in November 2020 and had low expectations as he had only been in post as the Welsh Guards Social Media Content Manager since August 2020.
However, he was awarded runner-up for his submission. His entries were taken while following the exploits of the Welsh Guards on Battalion exercises as well as other courses throughout the latter part of 2020. He called his portfolio, “A day in the life of an Infanteer” and his photographs depict how busy the Battalion has been despite the pressures and disruption of the Covid pandemic.
He also features in the February 2021 edition of Soldier magazine (which is available to read online here) - one of his images being placed on the front cover. It depicts a moment during a platoon attack on a Platoon Sergeants Battle Course at the Infantry Battle School in Brecon.
A selection of photographs from his portfolio are attached.
Well done, Sgt Morgan for all your efforts to support the Battalion and congratulations on your achievement.
