Sunderland veterans and families have attended a memorial service at the city's cenotaph to remember servicemen who died during Operation Banner in Northern Ireland.
It is the 50th anniversary since British troops were deployed to Northern Ireland in August 1969.
The Army named the deployment 'Operation Banner' and it lasted until 2007, costing hundreds of lives.
More than 20,000 soldiers were in Northern Ireland at the peak of deployment.
At least six servicemen from Sunderland were killed in Ulster while British troops were deployed in the province between 1969 and 2007.
Darren Robertson's father, Gunner (Private) Brian Robertson of 4th Field Royal Artillery Regiment, was killed by a bomb explosion on the 2 June 1972 in Rosslea, Northern Ireland. He was aged just 22.
Mr Robertson told ITV News Tyne Tees the memorial in Mowbury Park makes him feel proud about his father's service in the military.
Wreaths were laid at the war memorial and Private Robertson’s name was read out along with five other soldiers from the city who were killed during Operation Banner, including:
- Corporal Thomas Taylor, 26, May 1973
- Captain Robert Nairac, 28, May 1977
- Private Ron Stafford, 20, July 1979
- Private Stephen Humble, 19, August 1981
- Rifleman David Mulley, 20, March 1986
