A HUNMANBY teenager is in the army now after signing his allegiance to Queen and country.

Martin Maxwell, 16, of Constable Road, is set to join the Parachute Regiment after basic training at Harrogate’s Army Foundation College.

The former Filey School pupil said: “I’ve always wanted to go into the army from a young age and wanted to go into a regiment like this.

“I’ve been looking forward to it for quite a while and can’t wait to get stuck in.”
