4 Mercian's 150th anniversary parade in Kidderminster

To mark the 150th anniversary of Kidderminster's association with the Army, the 4th Battalion The Mercian Regiment will be marching through the Worcestershire town on Saturday.
4 Mercian is a Territorial Army Battalion and can trace its roots back to the volunteer militias of 1859. Volunteers from Kidderminster have
served with distinction in the British Army in both World Wars and more recently in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is appropriate therefore that it will be the TA who will make up the parade to commemorate the anniversary on Saturday.
A proud day for 4 Mercian! A proud day for Kidderminster!
