Just watching the Trooping of the Colour.

What the hell is the story with the Silver Spoon brigade YO and long hair?

Soldiers are to have short hair but not Officers?

What makes it worse is that they are on Public /Duties.

On that recent ITV series,Guarding the Queen,they had changed the material that the uniforms were made from & the Razman was not impressed with the colour & fit of the new stuff.

I noticed a number of rather "rotund" musicians! It probably doesn't affect their ability to play an instrument, but I'm not too sure about their secondary employment - taking the strain on one end of a stretcher!
