Darran's wife, Lisa, was also presented with a bouquet in recognition of the important role that families play in supporting military personnel.

Glasgow Times:

Darran said: "It has been a privilege to attend this annual Military Affiliates’ dinner.

“It was also a great surprise to my wife, Lisa, when they presented her with flowers.

"I thought it was a great gesture to acknowledge how vital families are in supporting us and the sacrifices that they undertake when we are away."
