Jenkins even took time out to sing Happy Birthday to Craftsman Bryan Larkin, who turned 22 while on tour. The serviceman said the impromptu performance was "the last thing I expected".

Jenkins, who is patron of the British Forces Foundation, said, "It is an immense honour to be able to perform for the men and women of our Armed Forces and I will continue to do so for as long as they want me".
