The Royal Anglian Regiment marches through Stevenage. Credit: @anemoneproject Martin Dunne 1 Thursday, July 24, 2014 4:36 PM The Royal Anglian Regiment marched through Stevenage today after returning from Afghanistan. To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.
Approximately 1,000 residents turned out to see the parade through the town centre. Soldiers gathered next to the Ibis Hotel at 12.15pm before marching through towards the town square. In a speech, town mayor Sherma Batson said: On behalf of Stevenage Borough Council, may I wish you a very warm welcome.
The council granted the honour of freedom of entry in recognition of your long and close association with our town. We have been treated to a unique and spectacular display today. From the bottom of my heart, and on behalf of the people of Stevenage, thank you.
Thomas Kearney, a regiment member and Colestrete Close resident, returned from his first tour of Afghanistan in February. He said: It has been great being back home and getting to see all my family again. Day-to-day life was completely different out there.
It was my job to go to the operations room and talk to people, who are out on the ground, and relay messages to them from our superiors and keep them informed of the situation. Being in the army is certainly not an easy job but as long as you re physically and mentally robust enough then you will get through the hard times. The friends you make are friends for life.
