Bloody well done Grenadiers.

It says on the BBC 1 info tab that this is also available in HD, but I can't find it. Anyone got any idea which channel it's on, if at all?

At work at the moment but will watch tonight on sky+.
Trooping the Colour, England in the World Cup and a chicken madras, life doesn't get any better!

I like watching the Trooping of the Colour though it pisses me off when the BBC feel the need to zoom in on black soldiers all the time. What's that all about? Are they trying to make some sort of point?

Probably to subtely remind us there is football stuff going on in Africa. In case we hadn't noticed.

White gloves are only worn by sergeants and above unless in Greatcoat order.

I was working with some of the Guards in Afghan. Couldn't believe it when they told me as soon as they got back they'd be getting geared up for this parade! Not my cup of tea but they do look smart and I've got a lot of respect for them.

Back on thread. Very good showing from what I could see but then again I'm no guardsman!!

It may have something to do with where they have been 'stragically' placed by their CSMs :D

Anyway there are coloured soldiers in the Guards - so what? It's not the first time you have mentioned this - you got a problem with coloured soldiers?
