Just got to say it, the KRH look as smart as 10.
And for me the Guidon escort looks as good as anything that history has to offer.
If there is a 'soldiers rank' that stirs up all of those emotions of valour, it has to be the Guidon Sergeant-majors; with their years of experience, brilliant display of medals and I suspect, to this day, their readieness to die to protect their Standard. Well done men, a fine example indeed !

Also not half bad, the squadron of old Hawks gathered to welcome the KRH home and one of the best flag pictures that I have seen, there where it belongs in the heart of Lancashire.
