Yesterday the Royal Marines 45 Commando marched through Parliament’s carriage gates in the glorious sunshine of June and were received by MPs including Secretary of State for Defence Bob Ainsworth MP after their return from Afghanistan. They were accompanied by a regimental band and I’m sure everyone remarked how smart they looked. It was an honour to receive these brave men and women and I was pleased to be able to ensure their visit was recorded on the Official Report of the House of Commons later on. Congratulations on their safe return is order!
