Hello Gents

Got this PK recently to go in the book with my TWM.

He looks a young 'un and not sure of his rank (cant see the epaulettes) but he has leather gloves in his left hand? (when I was in the Royal Marines these were worn by officers but this is prob a mile out and he is just a rank and file)

Any help on the script would be really appreciated, cheers fellas :cheers:

All the best
