Proud soldiers parade through Market Harborough as the town welcomes home the men who survived the Great War. Prayers are said and medals awarded. Visible scars are obvious but reflect on the emotional scars that remain hidden. These are the lucky ones though; the names of 254 men from Market Harborough and its surrounding villages of Great and Little Bowden are now inscribed on the town's war memorial.
