Town set to welcome home Private Wilson

Have your say

Corby soldier Private Scott Wilson will be among those being honoured when the Royal Anglian Regiment marches through the town.

The 20-year-old former Lodge Park Academy student attended the Army Foundation College at Harrogate.

He said: “I recently spent five months on tour in Afghanistan. While I was there it meant a lot to know that people back home were supporting us. I’ll be really proud to march through Corby. It will mean a lot to me and to the rest of the regiment.”

About 200 soldiers will march from West Glebe Park to James Ashworth VC Square at 11.40am on Monday, July 21.
