'Old' girl leads way; MILITARY.

THE first "old" girl from Solihull School to train as an Army officer will return to lead the commemoration ceremony on Remembrance Day. Officer cadet Claire Mills was a sixth former at the Warwick Road independent school that went fully co-educational this year for the first time in its 440-year history.

Miss Mills will be in uniform to lay a wreath in front of 900 pupils at Solihull School's memorial to old boys who died in the two world wars on Friday, November 11.

The 23-year-old, who left school in 2000, is due to pass out from the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, in January, and will be commissioned into the Royal Engineers.

She became interested in an Army career while a member of the Combined Cadet Force
