Daniel has been selected to be part of a crew sailing around Britain to commemorate the end of WW1.
In 2018 as part of the remembrance activities to mark the close of the First World War, 48 injured soldiers and 96 cadets will embark on a voyage of remembrance, adventure and personal development as part of the Lord Dannatt’s Round Britain Challenge.
The team will work together to sail around Great Britain on board a specially adapted tall ship, changing crew every 10 days in each capital city (London, Edinburgh, Belfast and Cardiff), In each change over port there will be a celebration of remembrance, inclusivity and diversity
Each 10-day voyage will see 12 injured service personnel and 24 cadets and instructors aged 16-25 working as a team to sail the ship to the next capital city, climbing the mast, helm the ship, setting the sails and much more.
In each capital city thousands of cadets, instructors and local supporters will have the opportunity to visit the ship and participate in the festival. Cadet bands, field gun teams, cook stewards and drill teams will all be asked to participate in the festival and memorial.
A quarter of a wooden shield will be presented to the crew in each capital city, at the end of the challenge the final piece of the shield will be presented in London where the cadets will march the shield to the Tower of London, the shield will be a WW1 Memorial.
