23 Engineer Regiment exercises freedom of Woodbridge

Hundreds of troops have been parading through Woodbridge in Suffolk to exercise their freedom of the town.

Based at the nearby Rock Barracks, 23 Engineer Regiment has recently returned from a six-month tour of Afghanistan.

The regiment was given the Freedom of Woodbridge in 2006 and last marched through the town in 2009.

Lt Col Frazer Ross, the commanding officer, told the BBC: "The military history with Woodbridge goes back well into the 19th Century."

He added: "We have got to keep the energy and goodwill going. We are very blessed with Woodbridge town."
