A Stevenage soldier has won an award for a picture taken during army training in Canada.
Acting Sgt Mark Webster has won the Professional Soldiering Image award in this year’s Army Photographic Competition for his ‘Dawn Raid’ picture.
The shot was taken at the British Army Training Unit Suffield in Canada during a six-month.
Sgt Webster, an army photographer with the Royal Logistic Corps, also came runner-up in the Professional Portfolio category.
The former paratrooper said: “It’s the first time I’ve won. I’ve never won anything before. I’ve come close a couple of times but I’m really happy to have won it. I wasn’t expecting it.”

“The winning shot was of a dawn raid, so you’ve got loads of mist. It’s 5.30 in the morning, the sun is just rising and there’s all this mist hanging around.
“There’s one guy knelt against the wall peering round, and a couple of other guys stood up against it, waiting to go. It was shot on exercise in a mock village in BATUS in Canada.”
