Soldier lends support to security team

TERRITORIAL Army soldier Robert Winterbourne was working as part of the venue security team at Earls Court during the Olympic volleyball competition.

Trooper Robert Winterbourne, of The Honourable Artillery Company, said: “As a student and TA soldier, the Olympics is the perfect summer job for me. It’s great to be involved in such a massive global event and it’s been an interesting experience.

“The fans have been really friendly. We got to watch the volleyball on our breaks and I’m fast becoming a fan. I wasn’t really aware of it before, but it’s a fast and competitive sport.”
