Saffron Walden: Soldiers On Parade
Soldiers from Carver Barracks march through Saffron Walden to mark return from Afghanistan.
Soldiers who have recently returned from a six month tour of Afghanistan have marched through Saffron Walden today (Friday).
Members of the 33 Engineer Regiment, based at nearby Carver Barracks in Wimbish, have been part of the Explosive Ordinance Disposal Search Task Force that disarms roadside bombs.
The parade through Saffron Walden marked their return from operations in Afghanistan.
The soldiers started the march from the Common Car Park, before travelling down Common Hill, along Hill Street, up Market Street and into Market Square.
They then saluted the Chairman of Uttlesford District Council and met other local dignitaries.
The regiment then marched from the Market Square up Market Hill, along Church Street and return to the Common Car Park via Common Hill.
Finally, the soldiers received their campaign medals from the operation, codenamed Operation Herrick.
