Soldiers who returned to our region from Helmand Province in Afghanistan have been honoured with medals in recognition of their service.
The 39 Regiment is being disbanded as a result of Ministry of Defence cuts, making this medal ceremony their last one, an honour that went to the Bengal Rocket Troop.
The Bengal Rocket Troop dates back 198 years to a unit under the command of the East India Company.
But that story will come to an end on these barracks outside Newcastle in a few months' time.
Early next year, the Albemarle Barracks will welcome the Royal Horse Artillery, which is currently based in Germany.
