Troops arrive at London Waterloo station for Coronation

More than 5,000 armed forces personnel travelled by train to London Waterloo before marching off to take part in the coronation. Network Rail said it was the biggest movement of military personnel on Britain's railways since Sir Winston Churchill's funeral in 1965. Members of the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force and Commonwealth forces travelled to the UK's busiest railway station on Saturday morning on board nine trains.
