Image of Swansea soldier in Afghanistan wins top prize for its photographer
AN image taken of a Swansea soldier on foot patrol in Afghanistan has clinched a top prize for its photographer.
Lance Corporal Nathan Williams, from 1st Battalion The Royal Welsh, of Bonymaen, was pictured handing over a pen to an Afghan child riding his bike while he was on patrol in Nad Ali in Helmand Province.
Army photographer Corporal Paul Morrison was awarded a runners-up prize for the picture in the Army Photographic Competition 2012.
