A poignant farewell to the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders

There were tears all round in Canterbury today as the Queen said goodbye to the army. She arrived by helicopter at Howe Barracks to inspect the troops.

As Colonel in Chief of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, this was a tour to bid farewell to the Battalion. It's not only leaving Canterbury but also being reduced to a single Company. David Johns has our report.

He spoke to Major Oliver Dobson and Lance Corporal James McCleary from the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.
