The Guards
 (голосов: 0)
The GuardsSoldiers of the Household Division are renowned for the unique proficiency with which they carry out ceremonial duties. Yet, while upholding the traditions of the past, the Household Division has mastered the skill of modern soldiering with confidence, and their soldiers are equally at home in tanks, armoured cars or parachuting.

Those men, whom you see replendent in their uniforms mounting guard or Trooping the Colour in disciplined ranks, are the same men who, in combat clothing, discharge operational duties worldwide.

The Household Division is made up of seven Regiments, comprising the Household Cavalry Regiment (The Life Guards and The Blues and Royals) and five Regiments of Foot Guards (Grenadier, Coldstream, Scots, Irish and Welsh).

As soldiers they are second to none and throughout the world they are respected for their self-discipline, smartness and reliability.
