Almost fifteen hundred soldiers from the Household Division will be on parade to mark the Queen’s Official 90th Birthday on 11th June 2016 on Horse Guards Parade, at the ceremony known as Trooping the Colour. All the Royal Colonels will accompany Her with The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge, and The Princess Royal riding on the parade.

This year, the Colour being trooped in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen is that of Number 7 Company Coldstream Guards. The Field Officer in Brigade Waiting, Lieutenant Colonel James Thurstan, Coldstream Guards, will command the Parade.

The Soldiers will be on parade in the traditional ceremonial uniforms of the Household Cavalry, Royal Horse Artillery, and Foot Guards. The musicians in the Household Cavalry Band and the Drum Majors will be in their priceless Gold Coats. There will be more than 300 horses on parade, and musicians from all the Household Division Bands & Corps of Drums will march and play as one. The famous Drum Horses of the Household Cavalry Band carrying priceless antique solid silver drums weighing 80lbs each will also be on parade.

Hundreds of hours of training, rehearsal and preparations have gone into making this a world class event fit for a Queen. All those troops taking part are operational soldiers first and foremost and have balanced honing their ceremonial skills with tough combat training at home and overseas. The medals on their chests are testament to their frontline service to the nation.

The immaculately turned out troops start forming up on Horse Guards Parade from 09.15am onwards. Her Majesty leaves Buckingham Palace at 10.45am and arrives on the parade at 11am, returning to Buckingham Palace at 12.20pm.

At precisely 12.52pm Gun Salutes will be fired across the capital: The Honourable Artillery Company will fire at The Tower of London and the Kings Troop Royal Horse Artillery will fire from Green Park.

British Asian girls from Huddersfield and Batley shone a spotlight on Army medicine when they visited a military field hospital in York this weekend.

The visit to Queen Elizabeth Barracks, Strensall was arranged by the Huddersfield Pakistani Community Alliance and the Indian and Muslim Welfare Society in conjunction with 4th Infantry Brigade based in Catterick and was designed to give the girls an insight into a career in medicine with an Army flavour.

Hosted by 34 Field Hospital based in Strensall, the girls were shown how to build a temporary shelter called a basha and prepared and ate a Halal operational ration pack for lunch. They were shown a battlefield ambulance and had the roles and equipment of a Combat Medical Technician and field surgical team explained.

After some basic first aid training including resuscitation techniques, they took part in a problem-solving task where they had to put their newly-acquired skills into practice.

34 Field Hospital was the last field hospital to deploy to Camp Bastion in Afghanistan in 2013 and also returned home a year ago from Sierra Leone where military staff ran the Ebola Treatment Centre in Kerrytown.

There will be more than 300 horses on parade, and musicians from all the Household Division Bands & Corps of Drums will march and play as one. The famous Drum Horses of the Household Cavalry Band carrying priceless antique solid silver drums weighing 80lbs each will also be on parade.

Hundreds of hours of training, rehearsal and preparations have gone into making this a world class event fit for a Queen. All those troops taking part are operational soldiers first and foremost and have balanced honing their ceremonial skills with tough combat training at home and overseas. The medals on their chests are testament to their frontline service to the nation.

The immaculately turned out troops start forming up on Horse Guards Parade from 09.15am onwards. Her Majesty leaves Buckingham Palace at 10.45am and arrives on the parade at 11am, returning to Buckingham Palace at 12.20pm.

At precisely 12.52pm Gun Salutes will be fired across the capital: The Honourable Artillery Company will fire at The Tower of London and the Kings Troop Royal Horse Artillery will fire from Green Park.
