    Sorry Alan, those are the Coldstream Guards(red plumes , tunic buttons in pairs) trooping the colour, not the Grenadier Guards(white plume, tunic buttons with no gaps).

    But they're playing "British Grenadiers", right?

    The band is indeed playing " The British Grenadier".

    I assumed that, in this context, it's the music rather than the personnel that matters.
    Maybe we're getting OT.

    Yes indeed. Sorry Alan, I am getting pedantic. I will reword my previous post.

    I too love British military band music.

    I've always thought those bands sound better than American brass bands, due to the different instrumentation.

    And Brassed Off, doesn't get much better than that! Such glorious music.

    Though when push comes to shove I'm a piper, and I love pipe music most of all.

    And I love Irish traditional music. Heck, Ancestry.com says I'm 35% Irish, so it goes to figure.
