Royal Marines march through hometown


The 40 Commando Royal Marines have marched through their hometown of Taunton in Somerset, to mark their return from their final deployment in Afghanistan.

During the unit's fourth and final tour, which ended in April, one Royal Marine, Cpl David O'Connor, was killed on duty.

Later they will be presented with their medals by the Duke of Edinburgh in a ceremony at their base, Norton Manor Camp.
