Royal Anglian InspectRegimentTHE people of Harlow did themselves proud as the Anglian Regiment paraded through the town centre on Thursday afternoon.

Hundreds turned out to see the Royal Anglians muster at the Post Office, then march up Broad Walk, and into the Water Gardens were they were inspected by dignitaries including the chair of Harlow Council, cllr Tony Hall.

The parade is part of a series of homecoming parades to mark the return of soldiers from their recent tours of duty in Afghanistan and Mali. The soldiers will also march through St Neots on Tuesday, 20th October and Norwich on Wednesday, 21 October.

The Royal Anglians, nicknamed ‘the Vikings’, deployed to Afghanistan with more than 200 officers and soldiers on Operation TORAL in February this year.

The Operation is the UK’s military contribution to NATO’s ‘Resolute Support Mission’ where troops undertake to ‘Train, Advise and Assist.’

The Vikings formed the Kabul Protection Unit (KPU) within the Kabul Security Force (KSF), working alongside US, Australian and Mongolian forces.
