Falklands Parachute Regiment veterans march through Aldershot

Forty years on from the conflict, paratroopers were welcomed to the home of the Army.

Marking 40 years since the conflict, Falklands veterans from the Parachute Regiment have been welcomed to Aldershot, home of the British Army.

Following a service of remembrance in the Aldershot Military Cemetery, the parade of veterans, led by the Band of the Parachute Regiment and the regimental mascot 'Pegasus', marched through the town. 

The Parachute Regiment and Airborne Forces Battlegroup march in Aldershot every five years to reflect on the conflict.
