Royal Irish 1st Battalion Returns from Afghanistan

We have had a couple posts on other Royal Irish Regiments fighting in Afghanistan. I thought this was an outstanding shot of them marching through Shrewsbury which is about 15 miles Southwest of their home base in Market Drayton, Shropshire, England. 

The UK Ministry of Defence noted that 400 soldiers were returning from their 6 month tour of duty. They have also been on tours to Iraq prior to their Afghanistan deployment. It his hard to glance over a sea of British Multi Terrain Pattern uniforms like this and not take notice.
