New kid on the block for the Royal Welsh Regiment's 1st Battalion

The Royal Welsh Regiment's 1st Battalion has a new regimental goat - Fusilier Llywelyn.

He was selected from the Royal herd on Llandudno's Great Orme and will live at the regiment's base at Lucknow Barracks, Wiltshire.

The goat will accompany the battalion on ceremonial duties.

His appointment follows the death of the 2nd Battalion's L/Cpl Gwillam 'Taffy VI' Jenkins in May last year.

The job of putting Llywelyn through his paces falls to Goat Major Fusilier, Matthew Owen.
