TERRITORIAL Army soldiers from Yorkshire will march through York to the city's Museum Gardens tomorrow to celebrate the formation of the new Yorkshire Regiment.
Members of the 4th Battalion, the only TA battalion of the Yorkshire Regiment, will proudly wear the new Lion and Rose cap badge on their berets as they march from Duncombe Place via Parliament Street to Museum Gardens.
The battalion has a unit based in Huddersfield which has just returned from an exercise in Gibraltar.
The country's top TA officer, Maj Gen The Duke of Westminster, will join the Lord Lieutenant of North Yorkshire, Lord Crathorne, the Lord Mayor of York, Clr Janet Hopton, and the High Sheriff of York, Viscountess Downe, at the parade.
The 250 soldiers will be inspected by Lt Gen Nick Houghton, the new Colonel of the Regiment. The parade will be followed by the Royal Salute, a 21-gun salute which will be fired to celebrate Prince Philip's birthday.
