Labour MP for Portsmouth South, Stephen Morgan, used last week’s Parliamentary ‘recess’ to visit armed forces personnel at the British Army Training Unit in Kenya (BATUK) to see the work of our forces first-hand.
During the trip, Stephen joined servicemen and women on a live training exercise as well as gaining an insight into the forces engagement with local communities, including a visit to an orphanage and school building improvement project.
The Portsmouth South MP also payed tribute to the fallen as part of an Armistice Day service.
Commenting on his visit, Stephen Morgan MP, said:
“It was fantastic to see first-hand the excellent work being done by our armed forces out in Kenya.
I enjoyed an extremely useful week at BATUK talking to serving frontline men and women about their experiences in the forces and how we can best support them in Parliament.
I want to express my sincere thanks to everyone who looked after us during our time in Africa and made the trip so informative and enjoyable. I’ll be taking back this experience to the House of Commons so I can continue to speak with authenticity on issues affecting personnel and our forces.
It was a real honour to spend time alongside such a committed and talented of service people”.
