* First Sri Lankan women graduate from Army School of Ceremonial in UK

Jan 17, Catterick: The first women from Sri Lanka will graduate from the Army School of Ceremonial in Catterick this week.

Every year, military personnel from across the Commonwealth travel all the way to Catterick, in North Yorkshire, to learn the military drill at the Army School of Ceremonial.

Flight Lieutenant Attale and Corporal Amarasena are the first Sri Lankan women to attend the school and they will graduate this week.

"It's a rare chance, so we are really happy," said Flt Lt Attale.

"[Lieutenant Attale and Corporal Amarasena] have done very well," said Colour Sergeant Paul Money, one of the instructors.

Learning how to perform a correct drill is key to British armed forces, but more and more international military representatives visit the training centre each year.

During their time in Catterick, foreign students learn how to perform the drill and how to teach it, as once they return in their home countries they are expected to give lessons to their own national military divisions.

The British Army School of Ceremonial is based at the Infantry Training Centre Catterick, which trains all the British Army’s infantrymen. (Source: Forces Network)
