'End of 350 year link between Warwickshire and army'
"We recruit in Warwickshire, Coventry, Birmingham and Nuneaton. And so many of our soldiers come from that area. And if this cut is made there'll be no link from Warwickshire to the Army anymore. And it goes back 350 years "
Veterans protest outside Parliament to save Midlands regiment
Hundreds of veterans campaigning to save an historic army regiment that recruits in the West Midlands have been marching outside the Houses of Parliament today.
The Second Battalion of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers is under threat because of defence cuts. It was previously called the Royal Warwickshire Fusiliers and has served in every major conflict since 1647.
