Nijmegen Company Grenadier Guards, No 7 Company Coldstream Guards and F Company Scots Guards

Nijmegen Company Grenadier Guards, No 7 Company Coldstream Guards and F Company Scots Guards on public duties. But first all companies have to pass their annual inspection, which they successfully passed and were judged fit for public duties.

All units undertaking ceremonial duties are subject to intense testing to ensure they are ready for the rigours and exactitude of the summer ceremonial season. Chief judge is the Major General Commanding The Household Division and London District, Major General Edward Smyth-Osbourne.

The Incremental Companies perform ceremonial and security duties in London. These duties are physically and mentally rigorous, and the minute attention to details of appearance, uniform, weaponry and drill, impart a unique discipline which translates into frontline operational excellence.

The quintessential image of the Foot Guards in their scarlet tunics and bearskins represents the very best of British Pageantry. A huge amount of man hours, professional training, skill, discipline and physical effort is required to produce the immaculate results necessary for events as prestigious as Queen’s Guard at the Royal Palaces or Trooping the Colour in June.

Passing the inspection is a matter of pride and honour for soldiers now tasked with delivering another splendid ceremonial summer in London.
