21 April 2014 Last updated at 16:58 BST

Army medics granted the freedom of Cardiff have marched in the city to celebrate the honour.

Reserve soldiers from 203 (Welsh) Field Hospital paraded after a Royal Gun Salute at City Hall in celebration of the Queen's birthday on Monday.

Members recently returned from their second tour of Afghanistan, where they provided treatment for soldiers at Camp Bastion.

The unit is only the ninth organisation given the freedom honour since 1886.

The award, which is a purely honorary title, was accepted by Col Tina Donnelly who is the Welsh Medics commanding officer. She is also more widely known as director of the Royal College of Nursing Wales.

She said the title was warmly welcomed.
