Welcoming Home the Troops


Last Monday 450 soldiers from the Mercian Regiment, who had recently returned from Afghanistan, marched through Hyde. Despite the heavy rain a huge crowd lined the route. This was the scene outside the market opposite the Town Hall about half an hour before the parade was to take place.


I was at the doctor's and came out after my appointment just in time to see the tail end of the march at the bottom of Market Street.


On Hyde DP Xtra you'll find three videos of the march past and links to other reports and photographs of the event.

Rain - liquide sunshine.

May time and life continue to treat them kind, and hopefully keep them home ...

Please have a good Thursday you all.
