Welsh Guards are recruiting.

SOLDIERS with the 1st Battalion The Welsh Guards were today expected to be at Barry Island as part of a recruitment drive.

The 600-strong battalion is due to move to a new base at RAF St Athan next year, and today's visit to the Island provided the ideal opportunity for some of them to get to know the area and meet the people. Three members of the battalion were joined at the resort by members of the other four Welsh regiments.

Welsh Territorial Army volunteers were also there with members of the Army Cadet Force.

The soldiers were due to be at the resort from 10.30am to 4pm.
