Hundreds attend ceremonial service and march to mark Falklands anniversary

Hundreds of people have attended a special service and march through Aldershot to mark the 35th anniversary of the Falklands conflict.

A ceremonial Drumhead service, a traditional Army field church service held using the regimental drums as an altar, was held in the Aldershot Military Cemetery - the last resting place of eighteen soldiers who fell in battle during the fight to regain the South Atlantic islands.

Hundreds of veterans attended, accompanying serving 'Paras' and troops representing the airborne units that make up today's 16 Air Assault Brigade.

The service paid homage to the 46 airborne soldiers who never returned.
