WW1: Memorial march for lost Royal Welsh Fusiliers in Belgium

The Royal Welsh Fusiliers have marched through a Belgian village to honour the hundreds from their regiment who died in one of World War One's bloodiest battles.

The 1st Battalion was annihilated in 20 ferocious days of fighting in October 1914.

A total of 1,264 men were killed in the countryside around Ypres and families are there to mark the centenary.

Abigail Neal spoke to Col Henry Cadogan and Brigadier Philip Napier in Belgium.
