Dereham Market Place this morning echoed to the cheers of thousands of flag-waving supporters who gave the Light Dragoons a rousing welcome home from their gruelling six-month tour in Afghanistan.

Our photographers were there to capture every moment, from the 350 troops who marched in step, the former servicemen who honoured them, and the 6,000 people, including 800 school children, who lined the streets.

In this special photo gallery, we present the best images of the troops of the Light Dragoons on the day they received the freedom of the town.
