Trooping the Colour Rehearsal

Today we were fortunate to get to see a rehearsal for the Trooping the Colours thanks to Constable Watson and the British Military who granted us permission to stand on the parade ground.  

This is a file photo from the actual event - it was raining this morning and I didn't get any good pictures - even the official British Military photographer was talking to us instead of taking photos.

Take a look at the following website for historical information on the reason for trooping the colours and for pictures/videos from current day celebrations of the Sovereign's birthday - and then set your alarm clock for really early on Saturday the 13th of June to watch this year's ceremony.
