Families welcome back troops to Dalton barracks
ONE hundred and twenty military troops returned home tonight.
Amid emotional scenes, families and close friends came to see their loved ones come back from a six-month tour of Afghanistan.
The soldiers of 3 Logistics Support Regiment flew into Brize Norton earlier this evening from Cyprus, before heading to Dalton Barracks near Abingdon.
Annika Price, who lives at the barracks in Didcot and was reunited with husband Jamie, said: "It's been hard work with two boys. I am really happy to have him back. I've just been counting down the days."
Her husband Staff Sergeant Jamie Price said: "It's been surreal coming home. I was there for six months. I really want to have a bath and to get back into normality."
The troops will shortly go on leave.
