Soldiers from the Royal Welsh Regiment will exercise their right to march through the streets of Ceredigion with a march through Cardigan on Thursday.
On April 25 2009, the Freedom of the county of Ceredigion was conferred on the Royal Welsh Regiment at a ceremony in Aberystwyth.
In accordance with this entitlement, the Regiment can march through the streets of the county on all ceremonial occasions with colours flying, bayonets fixed, drums beating and bands playing.
On Thursday, the Regimental Band, representatives of the Regiment, Cadet Forces and ex-servicemen from the county will take part in the re-affirmation parade at Cardigan.
The parade will form at 12.45pm at the Coleg Ceredigion car park and will march around the town in a clockwise direction, down Feidrfair, along the Strand and Bridge Street and up the High Street.
The parade will halt outside the Guildhall at around 1pm where it will be met by Councillor Mark Cole, Chairman of Ceredigion County Council, the Lord Lieutenant of the County, the High Sherriff of Dyfed, The Mayor of Cardigan Town Council and other distinguished guests.
It will then continue with its march along Pendre and end at Coleg Ceredgion car park.
