The Fijian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Jovilisi Suveinakama, attended the Pirbright Army Training Regiment in Pirbright to attend the pass-off parade of soldiers from the more comprehensive Commonwealth member countries.

Suveinakama was met by the 1 ATR Regimental Commanding Officer, Lt Col Kelly, who later introduced him to the Inspecting Officer of the day, Major General Zac Stenning OBE.
