Proud Heroes on march - The Sun

TROOPS who served in Iraq march proudly through London yesterday cheered on by crowds.

A total of 120 members of the 7th Armoured Brigade were given a rousing welcome after six months helping Iraqi forces keep the peace in Basra.

They later attended a reception with MPs at the Houses of Parliament.

Defence Secretary John Hutton told them: “I am sure everyone in the country is proud of you.”
Brigadier Sandy Storrie said: “This is a great honour. We had a successful time out there and this is a full recognition of what my soldiers achieved.”
