Officially taking over the position from his predecessor, the acting CSEL for the past eight months since the command's Full Operational Capability Event in the fall of 2021, WO1 Sanday is not a completely new face within the barracks.
Born in Lautoka, Fiji, in 1980, Henry Sanday came to the United Kingdom in 2001 and joined the British Army's Royal Green Jackets (now called the Rifles Regiment) as a Light Role Infantry Man. Besides several years of training, different positions, promotions and nine deployments including Sierra Leone, Iraq, Kosovo and Afghanistan, he got awarded with the Queen's Commendation for Bravery Award in March 2010. Honoring his utter professionalism and courage as a commander under the most complicated of situations after being attacked by four Improvised Explosive Devices during operations in Afghanistan in the year of 2009, WO1 Sanday remembers this award as one of his career's highlights to date.
