Soldiers from K (Hondeghem) Battery 5th Regiment Royal Artillery paraded through the grounds of Richmond Castle in North Yorkshire today during a ceremony to present them with Afghanistan operational medals. The Battery held the parade to mark the end of the Regiment’s period of operations in Afghanistan and their deployment on Herrick 20.
It was the final Herrick medal parade from Regiment’s that are based in Catterick Garrison. Colonel Mike Kelly was the Inspecting Officer on the day and the musical accompaniment came from the Royal Armoured Corps band.
