Pardon me...

...if this is a naff question, but what/who/how do they determines which Battalion Troops their Colours for Her Majesty's birthday Parade. Is it taken in turns or determined via Battalion performance for the year? I was watching this years parade and the 1st Bn The Welsh Guards had the honours where as last year I am sure it was another Battalion. Looking forward to your responses.
I think it used to be rotated between the units on a year by year basis, these days its whoevers got the time spare to prepare for the ceremony. I belive this years was meant to be a different unit possibly the Coldstreams but due to operational comittments they were unable to commit to the training so it was given to the Welsh.

Apologies if I'm wrong.
