Kyle's earned his stripes.

A teenager has overcome his special needs to earn his stripes with the Army Cadet Force.

Corporal Kyle Gilmour, left, 18, from Darlington, has a hearing impairment and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

But he has shrugged off the difficulties and has been told he will be awarded his third stripe with the Durham Army Cadet Force.

The teenager is a senior cadet in D Company, Darlington Detachment, and has just completed a BTEC National Diploma in Public Services at Darlington College.

He is a Duke of Edinburgh award winner, a crack shot who exhibits strong leadership skills and a keen sportsman playing rugby, football and athletics. He is the Army Cadet Force discus champion and has spent the summer in a host of cadet force activities.

"I am the type of person whot never gives up and never lets anything hold me back," said Kyle.
