Today soldiers who have served in the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan were honoured by the House of Commons where they were received for a march past.
The Speaker, Michael Martin, paid tribute to all that they do for us. It was very moving to see the soldiers dressed in their camouflage and sand boots, so recently used in the very different environment of war. I was glad that they were given such a good welcome. We also ensured that those who had lost their lives or who could not be there due to the injuries they had suffered were remembered for bravery.
I am still hoping that it will be possible for us in Royston to welcome the Anglians as they march through the town.
