The Mercian Regiment (Cheshires)

The Mercian Regiment (Cheshires) marched around the town on Saturday to cheers and applause as they received the freedom of the borough from the Mayor. It was a very cold and foggy day but still the crowds turned out to see this historic occasion. Out MP Edward Timpson was also present to the march past and attended the celebration at the Municipal Buildings.
The 1st Battalion of the 22nd Cheshire Regiment became the 1st Battalion of the Mercian Regiment (Cheshire) in August last year.
The Battalion has recently returned from an overseas pan-Commonwealth exercise in New Zealand and will shortly deploy to the Falkland Islands.
This will see the soldiers spending at least six weeks exercising in some of the world’s most arduous terrain.
They are to open a recruiting office at the old Lunacy at Sarahs shop next to the bank.
