Coldstream Guards Regiment
There is a good history clip here. The ‘star and garter’, left, is the regimental crest, worn on hardware on dress uniforms.
As an infantry unit, I have no idea how they compare to other modern regiments in the British Army. Is there a selection process to become a grenadier guard or a Coldstreamer? Are guardsmen plucked from the ranks of the regular army? I understand that the Coldstream Guards now includes women in its ranks. Very progressive of them. In any event, the youtube video might be enlightening.
- If you keep the severed head of an enemy in one hand and a sword in the other, you will not touch your face.
- There is a .01% chance of rain and nobody outside is using their umbrella…What’s wrong with people?
Practice Makes Perfect
What the “progressive left” doesn’t grasp, and won’t until it’s too late, is that none of these guys support their agenda or their friends. Not a single one of them is a communist.
And in America, there is one of them, trained and often well blooded, behind every blade of grass. Trained well, disciplined, employed, and not given to fits of rage because wet work is best done cold.
In England there is a saying that the Lamb will make you a lion.
The English are offended if you mix it with Diet Coke, over ice.
