    Who would have thought it? The Irish Guards have parted with some Beer! In this auction you may bid for a bottle of commemorative beer from the Queen's Birthday Parade of 2009. It's also named after Harry Robertshaw.

    7159 Private Harry Robertshaw, Irish Guards, who was killed during the First World War. His parting words to his
    sister before leaving England for the front line, after recovering from wounds, were "buy my friends a drink". A bequest in his memory received in 1986, to be used for fun, has enabled the Regiment to fulfil his wish. It is used to
    subsidise social functions such as St Patrick's Day in the Battalion. A specific request from his sister is that, at the discretion of the Regimental Lieutenant Colonel, those who participate in the Sovereign's Birthday Parade should be
    eligible as friends. The Quartermaster proposes a toast to his memory at lunch in the cookhouse on St Patrick's Day. This was done after Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother and the Colonel of the Regiment had left the room.
    7159 Private H. Robertshaw was killed when serving with the 2nd Battalion Irish Guards, during the stages of the German breakthrough 28th March 1918
