A Cornish nursery worker has explained how he ended up fighting in Afghanistan.

TA soldier Glen Hamblett from Par usually runs a preschool in Par.

But he and other members of Six Rifles from the Duchy have been training in Cyprus, in temperatures up to 37 degrees.

The Lance Corporal's already fought in Afghanistan and provided security at the Olympics.

He tells Pirate FM the day job is not that different: "One is of confidence, people skills, leadership and that's very much the role that I'm working in at the moment. I've got seven members of staff at the moment and they're all fantastic. It's all kind of people management at the moment.

"I was on Herrick 14 in 2011 which I enjoyed very much and I gained a lot of experience for that. That was really the reason behind me actually joining the TA in the first place, with a view to actually going on tour. Since then I've been picking up promotion and again, looking at hopefully going out on tour again sometime soon."

Glen and other Cornish soldiers are leading the way in a big army shake-up, which will see regular recruits having to work more closely with the TA.
