Action man Duncan is the pride of North Yorkshire!

Duncan Roy, an outstanding young man from Northallerton has recently achieved his lifetime ambition to become a Royal Engineer. Not only has he completed the sometimes gruelling training to gain his place amongst the ranks, but he has done it in some style, being honoured by the Institute of Royal Engineers as the Top Student.

Duncan is well known to his friends and colleagues as an always smiling, all action man whose love of life and all things country, is an inspiration to others. Constantly donning his running vest and taking part in charity fundraising races, extreme outdoor pursuits, competitions and village events with enough enthusiasm for the whole platoon. Never one to say no to a challenge, it comes as no surprise that Duncan has done so well. He is now looking forward to his adventurous new lifestyle and he is sure to be one to watch in the future. Being a country lad through and through it is certain that Northallerton will still be calling him when he is on leave, and his familiar figure will be seen pounding the country roads and running the fells around his home town as he always has. Well done Duncan - North Yorkshire is proud of you!
