Wiltshire's newest battalion have officially announced their arrival with a traditional "Sounding Retreat" ceremony at their new home in Bulford.
 
The 5th Regiment, The Rifles, have recently completed their move from Paderborn in Germany.
 
The display is a welcome chance for the soldiers and their families to get together after a busy few months on exercise.
 
The regiment's move is part of the Army 2020 restructuring.
 
5 RIFLES hope they will be able to recreate the close links they built in Germany with the local community in Wiltshire.
