A Great Turn Out For Our Troops

Southampton did our troops proud today, turning out in huge numbers to greet the men and women serving in the 17 Port and Maritime Regiment.

The Marchwood based unit which has recently returned from Afghanistan, marched from Mayflower Park, up the High Street, through the Bargate before finally lining up at the forecourt of the Civic Centre. They were met by Princess Anne the Princess Royal who spoke at length with the soldiers and presented them with their service medals.
