People braved the cold to show their support for 1st Battalion Welsh Guards in Swansea
PEOPLE braved the cold to line the streets of Swansea in a show of support for Welsh soldiers returning from Afghanistan.
Young and old alike were wrapped in coats and scarves as they cheered and applauded with gloved hands the troops from 1st Battalion Welsh Guards as they marched through the city centre on their homecoming parade.
Cries of "thank you" and "welcome home" could be heard as the soldiers made their way from the city's Guildhall, where they were inspected by Swansea's Lord Mayor, Councillor Dennis James, and Lord Lieutenant of West Glamorgan, D Byron Lewis.
Some were waving Welsh flags as members of the Prince of Wales's Company made their way along St Helen's Road, Oxford Street and Princess Way before heading to Swansea's LC.
