More than three hundred soldiers from 1st Battalion Welsh Guards have paraded through the streets of Cardiff today after returning from a six month tour of duty in Afghanistan.
They held a memorial service to remember four colleagues who were killed in action.
They were Lance Corporal Lee Davies, Guardsman Craig Roderick, Guardsman Apete Tuisovurua and Warrant Officer Leonard Thomas.
But there was also happiness, with the young son of one soldier deciding to join in the march.
Jane Solomons followed the Parade.
