The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment, known as 'The Tigers', have been conducting a 'freedom parade' through Winchester today.

The parade arranged by Winchester City Council and the Regiment takes place under a Freedom of the City right.

It is an old privilege to allow certain regiments to parade through the city with 'bayonets fixed, drums beating and colours flying.'

The parade will end with a reception at Guildhall after marching around the King Alfred statue and along the lower High Street.
