Individual shot and Individual champion soldier, which I was fortunate enough to win (and still have) Its been proper good trip down memory lane posting these I hope you find them interesting, I have a few more of varying quality I can dig out and will pleased to send you. All of these pics have been around the world twice and have been battered on the way, but in true Airborne style have managed to survive.
