Members of a regiment that trained in Berkhamsted before fighting in the First World War will return to the town for a parade on Saturday.

The Inns of Court Officers Training Corps – now the Inns of Court & City Regiment – was nicknamed The Devil’s Own by King George III. Its soldiers were based in Kitcheners Field from 1914 to 1919 and trained in trenches that were dug in the nearby area.
