SLIDESHOW - Fusiliers in Morpeth

Photographs from memorable day

Morpeth gave a wonderful warm welcome to 180 members of the 1st Battalion, The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers during their homecoming parade.

The streets were lined with people who applauded the soldiers who have returned from Afghanistan after completing a six month deployment in the Nahr-e Sara district in central Helmand. The Duchess of Northumberland and Morpeth Mayor Joan Tebbutt were among those on the dais in Bridge Street taking the salute.
