December 1st, 2016 – Tour of the Guards Museum

guards-2A group of Kent Clubbers and family members were treated to a private guided tour of the fascinating Guards Museum, but the curator Andrew Wallis MBE. The Museum reflects the fascinating history of the 5 regiments of Foot Guards (Grenadier, Coldstream, Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards), and the tour covered the period from the end of the English Civil War right up to the NATO-led Afghanistan campaign. We learnt about the life of the officers and soldiers, the campaigns they fought in, their uniforms and equipment and their ceremonial duties in guarding the Sovereign and the Royal Palaces, and heard some terrific stories from Andrew.
