The Duke of Cambridge has presented medals to members of the Irish Guards who have returned from Afghanistan.

William, who is Colonel of the regiment, presented operational service medals to soldiers of No. 2 Company, 1st Battalion at Mons Barracks in Aldershot, Hampshire.

Around 120 men received medals in front of friends and family.

No. 2 Company returned from Helmand province in October after a six-month tour. The unit suffered no fatalities but some wounded troops.
