Veterans from the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers have taken to the streets near the Tory party conference to drum up support to save the regiment.
The regiment, formerly known as the Warwickshire Fusiliers, recruited around 30,000 men from Birmingham during World War I.
Campaigners gathered at the opening day of the conference to highlight the issue of defence cuts.
Major Chester Potts, chairman of the Fusiliers Association, Northumberland, told ITV News that the government had got it "completely wrong" with their defence policy, which has put the future of the regiment in jeopardy.
