FENLAND MP Malcolm Moss took up the invitation to meet with members of the Royal Anglian regiment at a special briefing held in the House of Commons.
The awareness raising event included other MPs from the eastern region, all of whom who have constituents within the regiment.
The briefing was hosted by the Colonel of the Royal Anglian Regiment, General Sir John McColl, Deputy Supreme Allied Commander of Europe. The General addressed the MPs and concluded by noting that The Regiment, with its various constituent parts, was more akin to a family; and that this family had their roots deep in their
Home Counties "from which came a ready supply of brave young men, together with the moral support necessary to sustain them through difficult times".
