A service took place in Salisbury Cathedral today to mark the return - from Afghanistan - of the 1st Mechanised Brigade based in Wiltshire.
The brigade's main role while on tour was to support and train members of the Afghan Army and Police. As Martin Dowse reports - today was also a chance for the soldiers to remember those who didn't make it back.
