My name is Michael Nothnagel. I am 18 years of age and I’ve lived in Newport for the majority of my life. However, I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa.
I’m Antony Smith I’m 17 and from Newport. I left school at 15 with average GCSEs but before that I did Army Cadets for four years and had a lot of fun. I got to do a lot of cool things and I got to do most of the things that normal soldiers do like firing live rounds, Fieldcraft and a lot more. I also did my Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh’s award.
In 1999, Dan applied to join the army but was deferred due to an asthma condition as a child. He was encouraged to join the Military Preparation Course in Cardiff which is part of the MPCT we know today.
