Dozens of soldiers have paraded through Plymouth as part of the city's Poppy Day activities. Commando gunners descended on the city centre, armed with collecting tins, to boost the Royal British Legion's fundraising total.

The soldiers from 29 Commando Regiment Royal Artillery marched in their Green Berets from their base at the Royal Citadel on the Hoe, right into the heart of the city centre.
