Triplets at a Hampshire college set sights on army success

Hampshire military triplets

(Updated 1:03pm 11th February 2016)

A special ceremony at a Hampshire college has been held to celebrate the hard work of sixty young military students there.

Among the Farnborough Military Preparation College students are a set of triplets, who all have their sights firmly set on careers in the army.

They are thought to be the first set of triplets to serve in the Forces simultaneously.

Miriam and Connor Duffy, both sixteen years old, started studying there in June last year.

They have passed selection and will be heading to Harrogate in March.

Their sister Lauren joined FMPC a few months later, and will start her training this September.

All three are also set to star in an upcoming military recruitment campaign.

Farnborough Military Preparation College

Speaking to Eagle, the triplets were keen to emphasise how excited they were to follow in the footsteps of their parents - with both their father and mother serving in the forces.

Miriam told us: "Growing up as a military child, you always have the military revolving around your life. 

"Growing up, seeing my dad in his uniform and such, I've always been interested - what does my dad do?

"I would always ask him as soon as he got in the door, and it would always be something new - and different."

Their mum Traci added: "As they have grown up coming from a full military background, with both myself and their dad serving, it's something that's followed them around - but we have never made that decision for them.

"They have gone 'That's what I want to do' and we have supported them, 110%, in their choice."
