Lance Bombardier Sienna Wilkinson’s role in Ceremonial Operations is in Left Section of the Troop where she serves as a Gun Team Driver. She is a talented jockey, driving in the Gun Team for the state funeral of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the Coronation of Their Majesties King Charles and Queen Camilla. She has also represented the Troop in a Guard of Honour at the Spruce Meadows Masters Tournament in Alberta, Canada.

Meanwhile, she also is a promising talent in the sport of Bobsleigh, having learned to slide with the Army in early 2023. Due to her strong performance, Sienna was scouted to join the Army Winter Sports Association training in Norway with a trial for the Army Team.

The Foundation supported Sienna by paying for specialist and personal protective equipment required to race at competitive level. Sienna was successful and secured a place on the Army team for the 2023 UK Armed Forces Inter-Services Championships. She went on to race and won the title of Army Novice Ladies Champion.

This is very different from her work at the Troop but needs the same fitness, mental agility and determination. Well done Sienna!
