A group of soldiers left RAF Wittering this morning, and set out on a 250 mile charity walk.
The team is one of four groups marching one mile for every member of the armed forces killed on operations in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001.
The aim of the walk is to raise £1 million pounds for the Royal British Legion.
Each soldier is wearing full military uniform and carrying forty pounds worth of equipment.
Other teams started out in Plymouth, Portsmouth and in Cardiff.
Each group will then meet up in Wooton Bassett on Friday, the small town where the bodies of soldiers killed on operations are paraded through.
