James Sheren – Lance Corporal

The Rifles is a forward-looking, innovative, infantry regiment relying on mutual respect & self-discipline. The Rifles trace their values and heritage back to the Peninsular War and the time portrayed in the TV series Sharpe. Then, as today, independence of thought and action were prized amongst the specialist soldiers equipped with rifles who were known as Riflemen.

James left school in 2005.

5th Battalion The Rifles (5 RIFLES) is currently the only Rifles Battalion that uses the Warrior Armoured Fighting Vehicle.
