A 16-YEAR-OLD boy, excluded from school at 14 has turned his life around thanks to the Marine cadets.

Dale Hyde-Rowe, of Bletchley, is a member of marine group TS invincible, and had the honour of standing to attention for the Queen when she visited Bletchley Park on Friday.

He said: “When you are excluded from school it can be easy for people to give up on you, some probably did.

“I always wanted to join the Marines and now that I am 16 I have been allowed to. It has really helped to turn my life around and they treat you like a man rather than a kid.”

Speaking about the event itself Dale said it had to be meticulously planned and he was just glad that everything went without any problems.

He said: “It was nice to be invited along. I didn’t get to meet the Queen but it was still a good day.”
