    Indeed. Reminds me of that one that came out last year with the band(s) of the Guards playing the Game of Thrones theme!

    Wow!

    Spot the dropped lid! Bit like 'Spot the Ball' but no money to be won as slightly easier!

    As a conservative estimate, I'd imagine one hundred or so, of those Royal Marines on parade at Horse Guards have at least visited, if not joined this forum at some point over the last nine years. :)

    I've seen everything now.

    Three hundred plus musicians, one hundred Royal Marines Commandos in the guard. How on earth do you top that?

    Answer: My oppo, the mounted musician on Horseguards yesterday....

    Clash of the Dreadnoughts was an absolute ball tingler!

    Great atmosphere and a great performance :)

    Weather held out luckily, was a brilliant everything. Had the added bonus of seeing HRH Price Philip take the salute.

    Excellent news! I've no doubt there will be a few families who recognise their Royal.

    An excellent find @Rover. Still the best military band in the world, in my opinion. Superb.

    I've never seen this poster before, found it in the programme, thought I'd share. Sorry for the bad quality.
