Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders march in Canterbury farewell parade

Six hundred soldiers have marched through Canterbury for the last time as they prepare to depart their base.

The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, 5th Battalion the Royal regiment of Scotland, will not be replaced when Howe Barracks is closed as part of a restructuring of the Army.

The battalion has carried out three tours of duty in Afghanistan during their 10 years at the barracks.

Simon Jones reports.
