Hundreds of people lined the streets of Nottingham today as soldiers, who are based in Nottinghamshire, marched through the city. It was a special honour because they were awarded the Freedom of the City last year. Rajiv Popat was there.
Lt. Col. David Jones tells Central News why he thinks the soldiers parade like the one seen in Nottingham city centre today are important.
