'Marching orders' for Armed Forces Day offend veterans


A group of World War II veterans say they won't be marching at the planned Armed Forces Day in Cardiff next month - as they're worried they won't be able to keep up the pace.

They say they're insulted by a letter from organisers which states that those who fall behind will not be permitted to rejoin the parade.

But organisers say they never intended to offend anyone - and have arranged for veterans to march a smaller route, at a slower pace.
