A regimental medal parade was held in Tewkesbury today to honour more than a hundred soldiers who recently returned from a six month tour of Afghanistan. 120 members of the Allied Rapid Reaction Corps, based in Gloucester, took part.

Later, a Memorial Wall is to be consecrated and the Duke of Gloucester will present medals at the unit's base at Imjin Barracks in Innsworth.
