Serving troops marched with veterans and cadets all the way through the sun-soaked streets of Cardiff on Saturday, as Britain marked its second annual Armed Forces Day.
Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, appraised the parade, the focus of a national ritual, in order to honor the Britain's military.
“When men and women walk through the streets in uniform like this, it makes them feel 10 feet tall”, said Captain, Jimmy Carroll of the Queen's Dragoon Guards, who served in Afghanistan in the previous year.
The guys deployed in Afghanistan very well know that people are out marching today and that the throng is out there, too. They are acquainted with that fact that they can come home and come back to the huge public support. It is no less than being treated like a rock star.
Thousands of people were in the Welsh city to be a part of the occasion. A fly-past and church service followed the parade and hundreds of smaller parties took place all through the nation.
Armed Forces Day had been created in the preceding year, right in the middle of criticism that the nation didn't do enough in respect of its military force.
