My lifelong passion for the British military will lead me to London this June to attend Beating Retreat on the 15th and (hopefully) the Colonel's Review of Trooping the Colour.
I also plan to watch the marching on and off on June 14th and 17th.
From where do the troops, especially the bands, come on these occasions? I'd like to "accompany" them as much as possible.
Another question regarding Windsor: Is it possible to "march" with the New Guard from Victoria Barracks to the Castle and enter with them to watch the Changning of the Guard and then go back with the Old Guard to V. Barracks? From the Youtube-videos seen so far it seems to me that you have to choose either the marching to and fro or the Guard Mounting ceremony.
Thank you for any help.
I am really glad to have found this forum.
