It is a story I didn't expect to see, but I am very happy to have. The Telegraph has it here, British subjects, turned out in their hundreds turned out to welcome home members of the Duke of Lancasters' Regiment in Bolton.
Thank goodness. We in Britain seem to have long ago forgotten the value and sacrifice the brave people in our armed services have made, I am very happy to see the news of a welcome home parade. I would go further, I think that all soldiers returning home from active duty should be afforded the same.
Our soldiers are Labours forgotten civil servants. They were not however forgotten by the thousands of people who have and had their loved ones serving abroad.
