Harrogate - Yorkshire regiment Freedom parade & Bell VC Memorial Stone


On 5 July, 2nd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment exercised the Freedom of Harrogate. On the same occasion, a memorial stone was unveiled to commemorate the action, exactly one hundred years earlier, by 2 Lt Donald Bell Yorkshire Regiment (Green Howards) which earned him a posthumous Victoria Cross. The video clip includes Major Roger Chapman giving a good description of this gallant action.
