Clydesdale’s MSP Aileen Campbell was among many who welcomed the return of the 1st Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland at a parade through the streets of Hamilton on Monday 15 April.

The event marked the Regiments return from Afghanistan this month, after a 6-month tour of Helmand Province.

After the parade Aileen said:

"It was an honour to help welcome home the troops on their return from Afghanistan.

"I understand this will be the Regiments last tour of Afghanistan, so it will be a huge relief for family and friends to see them safely home.

"I know the Regiment will be holding similar parades throughout south and central Scotland this week, but it was really pleasing to see so many people from South Lanarkshire turn out to thank the troops and offer their support.
