Over 150 soldiers from the regiment will march through the city to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo.

The parade begins at 11am when soldiers will march into Centenary Square led by the Band of the King's Division.

The soldiers will be in full parade dress uniform and will march with bayonets fixed, band playing and colours flying. The battalion will also have with them the regimental colours, recruiting stands and military vehicles.

The Yorkshire Regiment has had a long connection with Bradford and many of the soldiers in the parade are from the Bradford district.
