The inaugural parade of 1 Scots through their new de facto home at Holywood, north Down, received a warm welcome today.

Residents lined the High Street, which was closed to traffic for a short time from 11am onwards, whilst the parade proceeded through.

The soldiers moved in last month, replacing 2 Mercian.

Here onlookers offered their views to The News Letter.

A second, longer article – plus a video showing the parade in greater detail – will be published online very early tomorrow morning.
