For Queen and Country

Post by PGOK » Wed Sep 07, 2011 2:13 pm

"Documentary following the Grenadier Guards as they prepare to lead the 2010 Trooping the Colour. But these men have had precious little time to prepare; as fighting soldiers, they have just spent six months on the front line in Afghanistan's Helmand Province. This is the story of how one and a half thousand men and women join together to create one of the greatest military ceremonies on earth. It is a ceremony with just one standard: Excellence."

So, according to the British military, they don't send musicians into combat..but they do send drummers...I think they know something we don't..

Wow... I don't know who gives the most unintelligible vocal commands... the US Marine Corps Drill Sergeants or the British Army Drill Sergeants? :sarg:
