The Army set up mobile testing centres across the country in support of the NHS as part of the management of the COVID-19 pandemic. Here, soldiers of the Grenadier Guards are seen setting up in the morning and putting on PPE before the public arrived for pre-booked appointments at a drive-through testing centre in London. Over two days they completed nearly 300 tests for COVID-19.
