Commenting on his achievement he said: “I’m really chuffed.
“I was surprised because I know how high the standard of entries was.”
Sergeant Morrison also came runner up in the professional soldiering image category.
Other winners in the contest include a picture by Corporal Jamie Peters, RLC of Jedburgh.
Voted as ‘best overall image’ by Facebook users it shows Apache flying over a large explosion taken during an air show.
The amateur soldiering image prize went to Corporal Dean Docwra of Queen’s Royal Hussars.
He said: “That image was a javelin firing, taken on Sennelager training area.
“When I saw the shot I was really happy about it.
“It’s not an opportunity you get a lot, to go and see something like that, let alone take a photo of it.”
