We always go to trooping the colour - a truly british occasion with all the colour, pomp and circumstance you would expect - plus its an excuse to go shopping afterwards

To a person who enjoys precision military drill trooping of the colour at Horseguards was an experience that has no equal.I have seen the parade about ten times as a child in British Jamaica prior to 1962, at that time I thought there was no room for improvement.However,the precision, the order, the straight colums of marching troops,the flawless execution of complex movement, the immaculate uniforms,the immediate response to commands explains the enigma of a small country like England was able to amass the largest and most powerful empire known to man. Trooping the colour at Horseguards is an experience I will never forget.
