No amount of rain could dampen the Barnsley spirit, and our Heroes, The Light Dragoons were given the best ever homecoming.
The crowds that had gathered along the barriers waved their flags, cheered and clapped. Repeated shouts of, "welcome home, we're proud of you!" could be heard across the town.
So many young men and women marched in that parade today. Fresh from a six month tour of duty in Afghanistan. Sadly, some of them never made it back alive. A minute's silence was observed in their memory.
Young brave soldiers who are willing to pay the ultimate price for Queen and Country.
God Bless Each And Every One Of You
