Pak Cadet wins Sword of Honour at Sandhurst

A Pakistani Army cadet has won the coveted Sword of Honour at the prestigious Royal British Military Academy of Sandhurst. The 22-year-old officer cadet Ukbah Hadded Malik beat 26 other overseas cadets to win the honour, which will be presented to him at the passing out parade on April 13. He will be among overall 207 cadets marching out of the celebrated military training establishment.

The RMA Sandhurst was formed in 1947, from a merger of the Royal Military Academy in Woolwich (which trained officers for the Royal Artillery and Royal Engineers from 1741 to 1939) and the Royal Military College at Sandhurst.

Following the ending of National Service in the UK, the RMAS became the sole establishment for initial officer training in the British Army. The young officer who did his initial 18 months course at Pakistan Military Academy, Kakul, has also won a medal in best communication and management skills.

 

Talking to APP, he expressed his delight at winning the coveted honour which he has dedicated to his country, family and his institution. Son of retired Brigadier Haddid Anwar Malik of the Army Aviation Corps, Ukbah intends to join his father’s original regiment-the Sindh Regiment upon his return to Pakistan.

 

He said the training he received at PMA proved to be in a good stead for him at the Sandhurst which went long way in winning him the rare honours.

 

Apart from his outstanding achievement in academics, Ukbah also excelled in sports during his one-year stay at Sandhurst and became a member of the Academy’s cricket team.

 

For the moment, he will not be returning to Pakistan immediately, as he will proceed to South Africa with the Academy cricket team to play a series of matches.
