Obviously they misunderstood when the RSM told them to "Watch your dressing!"

Colour co-ordinated squads.

Pretty :)

I might be able to explain this one - apparently the normally conservative Thai king has been told that wearing bright colours is good for his health. When he came out of hospital recently, he was wearing a bright pink suit. There was then a massive run on pink polo shirts as patriotic Thais bought into their king's new fashion statement. The king's guard may have had their new uniforms specially commissioned recently in order to fit in with the king's new dress code :D

Does that include the bright blue and yellow uniforms too?

Quite possibly - the article says 'bright colours' in general but due to him wearing a pink suit it seems that everyone wanted pink too :D

These guys are wearing historical uniforms. I reckon we should do some of that.

Hang on - we already have our own version.

Just a silly in its own way really .

Whose coat is that jacket? Oh mine and the taxi is already here you say?
On 16 June 2003, the Guard of Honour unit first began wearing the historical uniforms at the official residence of the President of the Slovak Republic during ceremonial occasions which require the guard of honour at the Presidential Palace and also at Bratislava Castle.

The uniform design was created by Mrs. Mgr. ?ubica Jarjabková and Mgr. Helena Jurikovi?ová.
Does four years old really qualify as historical?


With regard to both the Slovaks and Thais, I wonder what their thoughts were when they were told they'd have to wear these uniforms. Can't have done much for retention, surely.

Its interesting that they guard their head of state without magazines fitted
There's a special slot in their shoulders for the magazine, makes it easier to carry the rifle.
Never mind the lack of magazines. Has the closest Pink Guard removed the insides of her rifle or are the working parts hooked back? (The pink ones are ladies, aren't they?)
