At the beginning of June, I travelled to Sheffield to photograph the annual UK Armed Forces Ice Hockey Tournament.  This was my fifth year as tournament photographer; I consider it a privilege to be a part of this prestigious military competition, which seems to get bigger and better every year.  Teams from across the three Services compete against each other over four days in two mini leagues to become Tri-Service Champions.  The evenings are reserved for the Inter-Service Championship, where the Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and the British Army battle it out for the highly coveted Inter-Service Championship Cup.

So with my kit bag all packed and lots of layers to ward off the chill of the ice, I made the long trek from Norfolk to Dundee. Read More
