Is this true? The Royal Corps will have the honour of guarding her Maj?

Does anybody have any more info?

More like a 1 Bde responsibility, tho' 16SR has first stag.
 
Last time was 95 IIRC for 16 Sigs. I had the pleasure(!) of sitting next to the then CO on a flight back to Germany when he visited them.

It would explain why the have a 'drill' club in Walse FFS

Lets get our priorities right: comms that work 1st, public duties 2nd! :pissedoff:

Yep its true. 16 sigs have 3 months stagging on outside Windsor Palace, Buckingham Palace, Tower of London and St James'. Training started today.

Apparently its because the Guards have been overloaded with Op Tours. We're even sending females!

Don't feel special/hard done by, guys. They've got every man and his badly drilled dog standing in for the slashed peak ones. Even the Navy and the Jamaican Defence Force are having a stag...

The Coldstreams who are off to Afghan, the Welsh currently stationed in Banja Luka, the Irish who are deploying to Iraq or the Scots who are playing with Warriors in Germany?

Afghan in the spring apparently
That's quite a catchy phrase there mate, although you might want to substitute somewhere a bit more pleasant if you want it to catch on....

Hmmm... what about "Paris" as an alternative?

:biggrin:

Lucky them

Did 3 months when the Corps last had the honour in 1995. Yep there was a lot of prep, but the 3mths in London in the middle of summer made up for it.

Happy Days

Fewer French in Afghan - one of its many selling points.

If you wanted to be in london then why not get a posting to 238 (yea I know they are moving, but where) Public duties ain't anything good, just alot of standing around. Plus your not going to impress the fit women who come to London as they look forward to seeing the Guards in the red tunics (forgive the spelling). London in the summer is great though. Where abouts are the lads staying and anyone know where 238 is moving to yet?
 
rumour has it 238 are going to woolich which is a dump.

And bloke i know who did public duties last time in '95 said it was a great laugh
