Do you remember your first field camp – living outfield, eating rations, with no one to lean on but your rifle and your buddy? What did you miss about home? Was it Mum's hot home-cooked meals? The clean bedsheets she always had laid out? Her warm hugs and words of encouragement?

Out on their first field camp, these recruits from Leopard Company are reminded of Mum's unconditional love and concern for them. This Mother's Day, they pay tribute to the #1 woman in their lives who have been by their sides every step of the way.
