The Freedom Parade for the crew of HMS Ledbury was also a special day for local Army and Sea Cadets, who did themselves proud as part of the thrilling Sunday spectacle in the town centre.

For Simon Gryntus, the Company Sergeant Mayor of the Hereford and Worcester Army Cadet Force, the event showcased the very best of today's young people, and who would disagree?
