Blue uniforms? I'm sure my Action Man had a bright red jacket when he was being a Mountie....?

Kings troop will go first. Useless bunch of turds anyway, they could get another unit to fire the guns a couple of times a year. Besides, I bet the Mounties do a better job of QLG than Kings troop ever did. AND I bet if the Queen asked them to be on the Trooping, they wouldn't back down because 2 horses have a bit of a runny nose.

Just to add - I notice in another part "A day in the life" Mentions bugger all about the shit pit being broken! So shoving the piss and crap from over 160 horses on to the square and in to a skip!

The article in the Telegraph states that this is the first time that the Queen has been guarded by a non-British Civilian Force.

As I recall, the RCMP is considered to be a Regiment of Dragoons, and while this maybe the first time they have guarded her in the UK, it is certainly not the first time they have mounted guard in London, or the first time they have guarded her at all.

The Canadian army / peacekeeping for already has a regt of Dragoons does it not? I thought it was the Royal Canadian Dragoons, RCD. So if the RCD have don eit before - different folk, new story.
They are (RCD) "Sister" regt to the Household Cavalry I heard. We had one of their officers posted to us in about 1996, but tragically he died of Leukemia, but another chap came over - Nuts, but good. We also had a sqn / enlarged sqn come over and pinch our vehicles for a few days to play with (and break, then fix), then when I was in Canada (BATUS) in 98, the final Med Man 6, we had RCD with us, acting as Inf.

How long are the RCMP doing the Horseguards gig for? I might nip into the smoke for a look.

The RCMP are considered to be a regiment of Dragoons and carry the Guidion with their battlehonours. While the Royal Canadian Dragoons are the only regular Dragoon regt. there are two other militia regiments on strength, the British Columbia Dragoons, and the Saskatchewan Dragoons.

Leave the Bee Gees alone? I thought they were dying out?
