If he has his stag do with the Micks he will have to have it the week before or he will never make it to the church on 29th April
The Colonel then was General Sir Basil Eugster, The Colonel-in-Chief as with all the Foot Guards is HM The Queen.but i thought that the queen mum had been their colonel for many years, i remember her presenting the shamrock in Munster many moons ago when my mick brother was stationed there, or was it just a royal visit?

The Queen Mum had a special affection for the Micks and her Equerries in the last 3-4 decades of her life all came from the Irish Guards after an officer from the BW allegedly blotted his copybook. The Queen Mum's attachment was ex-officio, but strong nonetheless, hence the presentation of shamrock to the battalion whenever possible.
