On Friday, November 27, at 11.30am, 2nd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers paraded through Warwick town centre to mark their arrival home from Iraq and Afghanistan. This was an extra special homecoming for the Fusiliers, who have a special link with Warwick as the The Royal Warwickshire Fusiliers (The 6th of Foot) was one of four regiments to make up the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers. The regiment has the freedom of the town and this enables them to march with drums beating, colours flying and bayonets fixed. The parade ended at St John's Museum where the regiment's museum is housed (http://www.warwickfusiliers.co.uk).

The parade involved 200 troops, including a colour party, Corps of Drums and Minden Band.

The route took Northgate Street, Church Street, High Street, Swan Street and Market Place, with a collective salute at Shire Hall from Warwickshire County Council Chairman Cllr Peter Barnes, Warwick District Council Chairman Cllr Norman Pratt, the Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire Martin Dunne, High Sheriff of Warwickshire the Lady Kilmaine, Colonel of the Regiment Brigadier TJ Minter OBE DL, and Warwick Town Mayor Cllr Peggy Bennett, before continuing down Jury Street, Smith Street and to St John's Museum.
