Comment on The Household Cavalry

I served in The Life Guards (Household Cavalry). I served with the Mounted Sqn. I have no complaints ? the discipline I had then I believe has made me the man I am today, and because of the internet I have made contact with old friends I knew then, which makes one feel good.

Comment on The Household Cavalry

It is with immense pride that I can say that.... I served in the Household Cavalry for 12 years as a Royal Horse Guard......the character building and discipline made me the person I am today.....and although it is more than forty years since I left the Regiment....the friends made then.... are still friends now ...as is the personal discipline.

Comment on The Household Cavalry A Great Regiment

From an ex Blue & Royal: saying that, you are never an ex, you are never far away from the Regiment. Wherever you are in the world you will bump into ex-members in the most unlikely places ? Clive Seager on the Dover-Calais Ferry for instance. Then March at the Eagles Rugby Reunion is a really great weekend where you just dont know who is going to walk through the doors of the Scarbourgh Arms next. A great Regiment, great people, and a great honour to have served in the Household Cavalry (RHG/D).

Comment on The Household Cavalry

I served in The Life Guards back in the 50's - 60's. The Household Cavalry taught me self respect which has never left me, and I am proud to have kept my connections with the regiment as a regional rep. London without The Household Cavalry. ?. NEVER.

Comment on The Household Cavalry

Close your eyes and try to picture London during a state visit by a head of state. Take away the Household Cavalry. You would have just outriders on motorbikes. It would not be the same. Since 1969, whenever the British Army has been on active duty somewhere in the world, the Household Cavalry were there: Northern Ireland, Cyprus 1974, the Falklands in 1982 and the Gulf War in 1991. Today Iraq and Afghanistan as well as Bosnia. The image of the toy soldier has now gone, they serve the Queen and the nation not only on ceremonial duties but on active duties. They carry out both with honour and with pride. Now they have not only two princes but also the Princess Royal as Colonel of the Blues and Royals, the link with the Royal Family is even stronger today than ever.
