Good effort, it's always nice to see someone rise up through the ranks.

I know there are quite a few Fijians in the Army, does anyone know if any have gone through Sandhurst yet?
Probably a darned sight earlier than most people would guess.

In 1965, Lt Yasa, 2nd Green Jackets (KRRC) was commissioned from Cpl. Certainly went through officer cadet training but I don't know for sure whether it was Sandhurst though I believe it was.

Edited; not RGJ until 1966!

I know of at least one who also happens to be a fucking all round good egg currently a major in the RLC and probably looking at his half colonel shortly (but don't know for certain) he went through sandhurst in the early 90's.
