5:45am 15th October 2009
Hundreds of soldiers will march through the streets of York this morning as they take part in a freedom parade.
About 250 members of 2 Signal Regiment, which is based at Imphal Barracks, will exercise their right to the city.
They'll march with colours flying, swords drawn and bayonets fixed.
It'll be the first time the regiment has exercised its right since receiving the Grant of Freedom in January 2001.
