A GROUP of Chelsea pensioners have enjoyed a whistle-stop tour of Plymouth.

The pensioners were special guests at the Remembrance Festival which was organised by the Federation of Plymouth and District Ex Services Association.

During a two-day stop over in the city the four pensioners were put up by 3 Commando Brigade at Stonehouse Barracks.

As well as appearing at the remembrance event, they also enjoyed a historical tour of the barracks.

"They thoroughly enjoyed their visit," said Colour Sergeant Gary Chapman, who is mess manager at Stonehouse Barracks.

"They mingled with the officers and enjoyed a historical tour of the barracks.

"We were delighted to host them."

A Chelsea Pensioner is an in-pensioner at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, a retirement home and nursing home in Chelsea, London, for former members of the British Army.
