Royal Anglian soldier turned teacher leads Remembrance week at Essex School

Eight years ago Royal Anglian soldier Jonny William retired from the regiment he loved to become at teacher at Honywood School in Coggleshall.

After serving in Afghanistan and Iraq and then going on to train others, teaching, he felt would be a natural progression.

And, he was right, attributing his successful transition to ‘civvy street’ to the school.

Jonny joined the Army Reserve with the 3rd Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment when he left the Regulars. Staying with the Regimental family.
