Royal Anglians' Lincoln Homecoming Parade

Soldiers from 2nd Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment will hold a homecoming parade in the centre of Lincoln on March 12th.
The Battalion returned last October from their second six-month tour in Iraq where they did a great job training local Iraqi security forces; the success of their efforts can be judged by the political and economic stability that has returned to the Basra region in recent months.

The guys are sure to get a great welcome from people of their home town on March 12th.

"Our soldiers have sacrificed much in that war-torn country and deserve to be recognised by their local community for doing a difficult and dangerous job, thoroughly professionally, on behalf of the country."

Welcome home, lads! Job done!
