Soldiers from 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment (The Vikings) march from the parade ground after they received their Afghanistan Operational Service Medals at Picton Barracks on November 1, 2012 in Bulford, England. The parade was the first in a series of events marking the end of their successful six-month deployment to Afghanistan as part of Task Force Helmand. The parade comes during the same week that two more British soldiers were shot dead at a checkpoint in Afghanistan by a man wearing a local police uniform.
