The Yorkshire Regiment - Freedom of the Borough

The Green Howards were granted the Freedom of Scarborough in 1945. This freedom gives the regiment the “right, title, privilege, honour and distinction of marching through the streets of the town with drums beating, colours flying and bayonets fixed.” This right was last exercised in October 2004 to celebrate the Green Howards' return from Afghanistan.
 
The Freedom of the Borough is a highly prized honour for many regiments implying a long and harmonious association between a regiment and the local community.  With the recent amalgamation of the Green Howards into the Yorkshire Regiment, the honour was transferred to the new regiment in September 2006 and for the entire Borough of Scarborough.
