A retired army officer from Dukinfield has defended his decision to heckle the Defence Secretary during a speech at the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester.
76-year-old Joe Eastwood, and another former officer, were both ejected from the conference hall.
They had protested against a decision to disband to the second battalion of the Royal Fusiliers, which recruits in the North West.
