A STEVENAGE soldier has won a top army award.
Private Kurt Mannell won the Soldiers’ Soldier award, after successfully completing the Combat Infrantryman’s Course in Catterick, North Yorks.
The 19-year-old joined the army as soon as he left his school, Thomas Alleyne.
“It was wicked to be told I was the soldiers’ soldier,” he said.
“It was a humbling to see how my efforts had been appreciated by the lads.”
