258 Signal Squadron Home Coming & Freedom Parade Nuneaton

Today I had the pleasure of attending the Home coming and Freedom Parade for 258 Signal Squadron.

For the past 6 months, the regiment have fought in the heat of Afghanistan and the parade not only marks their return home, but they have also been awarded the prestigious 'Freedom of the Borough' accolade.

This is a reaffirmation of the Freedom which was previously awarded to the Squadron when it existed under a different name.

The Signal Regiment is based a couple of miles up the road from Nuneaton at Bramcote Barracks.

The Town centre was packed with members of the public, It was extra nice to see so many youngsters attended from lots of different local schools and they proudly waved their Flags.

The parade was cheered as the Squadron proudly march past.

Here are some links to some videos of today.
