A Hucknall solider has returned from an Exercise in Kenya where he helped maintain electrical medical equipment and keeping vehicles on the road.
Lance Corporal Robin Newton, 29, was one of 12 Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME) who were part of the six-week programme named Exercise Askari Serpent.
Lance Corporal Newton said: “I really enjoyed it. It was my first time in Kenya.
“I liked the fact I wasn’t just working on the vehicles. I was also responsible for the wiring and the electrics on the camp.
“If anything broke people would come to me to fix it.”
