Lance Corporal Wyatt Chappell has been put forward for the prize for his ‘can-do attitude and excellent attainment’ as he worked through his Level 3 apprenticeship in policing while serving with the Colchester-based 156 Provost Company, 4th Regiment Royal Military Police.
LCpl Chappell, from Basingstoke, will find out whether he has won the award at a ceremony at the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst on Wednesday, March 6.
