Royal Welsh soldiers march in Ludlow on 325th anniversary

Soldiers from 1st Battalion The Royal Welsh have been granted the freedom of a Shropshire town to mark a historic anniversary.

Ludlow Town Council's gesture commemorates the 325th anniversary of the raising of the Royal Welch Fusiliers (RWF) at Ludlow Castle.

Soldiers marched into the town on Saturday to receive the honour.

They last marched through Ludlow in 1997 at a homecoming parade after service in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
