Heroes come home.

FAMILIES hang the flags out yesterday as 200 soldiers from Iraq marched home for Christmas.

The 3 Logistic Support Regiment paraded through Abingdon, near Oxford, as hundreds of relatives and colleagues cheered.

Sergeant Gail Harper, 31, a keen backer of the Mirror's Honour the Brave medal campaign, said: "It's a really nice feeling to know that people back home are supporting soldiers."

Julia Wright, who was reunited with her husband, Corporal Richard Wright, said: "It's fantastic to have him back for Christmas."
