Soldiers from the Adjutant General's Corps have been given the Freedom of Winchester today. Around 150 of the troops marked the occasion with a 'Freedom Parade' through the city's streets.
The right of "Freedom of Entry" is an ancient privilege. It means the regiment can parade with bayonets fixed, drums beating and colours flying. The tradition dates back centuries, to a time when only trusted military units were allowed to bear arms within a city's boundaries.
They were described as two of the most capable and dedicated members of the air force. Today two flight lieutenants based at RAF Benson in Oxfordshire, killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan, were flown home.

A new survey has been launched to find out how well former soldiers have adapted to civilian life.
The Kent and Medway Civilian Partnership board wants to hear from the one hundred and twenty nine thousand or so former servicemen and servicewomen who live across the county of Kent. The organisation is made up of representatives from local government in Kent and Medway, the armed forces, and service charities.
The questions asked include issues such as - how well the veterans are adapting to 'civvy street', how they contribute to the local community, and whether they feel well supported within their local communities.
The form is available to complete online from Friday 5th June, and the closing date for filling in the survey is 31st July 2015. The overall findings and results of the research will be published in early 2016.
"In Kent we have over 2,600 serving personnel and 412 reservists who we know we can reach with this survey.
"But we are keen on tracking down ex-service personnel who we have no way of knowing where they are and how their lives have changed.
"The survey will remain anonymous though we do ask for a postcode to help us map needs and opportunities.
"By taking part in this survey, it will help us shape where and how resources can be focused for people associated with the armed forces.
"We want to make sure the Kent and Medway Civilian Military Partnership Board have as much information as possible to inform their decision making."

The first of the UK’s A400M Atlas next-generation military transport aircraft has today been officially unveiled by the MOD at its new home at RAF Brize Norton.
The aircraft will replace the existing fleet of C-130 Hercules which have been the tried and trusted workhorse of the RAF’s Air Transport Fleet for decades.
Manufactured by Airbus Defence & Space, A400M Atlas will represent major advances on its predecessor, capable of flying almost twice as fast, twice as far and carrying almost twice as much cargo.
With a cargo capacity of 32 tonnes and a hold optimised for carriage of heavy vehicles, helicopters or cargo pallets, the aircraft is capable of supporting a wide range of operational scenarios.
The UK is the third country to operate the aircraft, after France and Turkey and the £2.8bn programme will see a total of 22 aircraft delivered to the RAF in the coming years.
