Private Owens

"PTE Owens made the jump from the S.N.I.Y to 6SCOTS in September 2016 and hadn't looked back since. Most recently he won Best Student at ITC Catterick on his combat infantryman’s course! Until his course his experience was limited to basic training, a week shooting at Warcop Ranges & Ex Wessex Strom (with the Yeomanry). He is now a fully trained Infanteer & a proud member of B Company in Ayr.


Born & raised in Irvine he lives with his parents and successfully completed his apprenticeship as a joiner a couple of years ago. Working for Ayrshire Council has been a blessing as his employer is very flexible with the days he wants to train with 6SCOTS. Eventually, Lawrence plans to run his own business!


With a brother in the Royal Engineers & grandfather who fought in WW2, PTE Owens was inspired to get his taste of military life and now feels the benefits. His confidence has improved which has helped deal with tenants in civilian job & his fitness has improved since his selection weekend while still reducing his P.F.A time. For the future, he hopes to deploy on Op Shader in 2018 and get on as many courses to gain valuable soldiering experience."
