Gurkhas are reunited.
More than 100 soldiers from Foxtrot Company, comprising troops from the 1st and 2nd Battalions The Royal Gurkha Rifles, returned to Sir John Moore Barracks in Shorncliffe, Folkestone, Kent.
Pipes and drums greeted the Gurkhas as they arrived in two coaches at the barracks, which was decked out with banners and flags welcoming them back.
Each of the servicemen was presented with a ceremonial scarf known as a khada on the parade square in front of their emotional loved ones.
Wives, girlfriends, children and mothers and fathers dashed forward to embrace their returning men with hugs and kisses.
