This is an edited version of a letter sent to Royston Town Council, calling on recognition for the troops serving with the Royal Anglian Regiment who have seen duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.

THE Royal Anglian Regiment has been recognised for their service to our country by Norwich, Bury St Edmunds, Great Yarmouth, and Southend-on-Sea, by being given the freedom of these cities and towns.

I would like to ask that due to Royston's close association with the regiment, that we as a town extend the same privilege to these brave men and women.

At the same time we extend our deepest sympathy to the families and comrades of the nine in their ranks who lost their lives serving the country.

I hope Royston Town Council would take the same view as myself, that such recognition would send a clear message to our Armed Forces still serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

We could show that they are not forgotten by us at home, and that we care very much, and we fear for their safety.
